Wednesday Shop Talk
Wednesdays, 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. (Central)
During a recent Zoom meeting, the Advisory Board rediscovered the joy of talking kidlit. After weeks of isolation, it was liberating—and fun—to get together to chat, and we want that for all of our members, as well. So we have created weekly Shop Talk gatherings to allow anyone who wants to participate to join the conversation. These will have a short overview of some kidlit topic, followed by time to socialize.
