The 2014 Jan Paris Bookfest will change formats this year. There will be no workshops to attend with the exception of one.
After a lunch on your own, Dr. Julie Marie Frye will present:
3:00 - 4:00 Host(ess) with the Most(ess): Designing Author Programming that Ignites a Passion for Reading
We think the authors at the Jan Paris Bookfest are going to inspire you so much that you are going to want to host your favorite author(s) @ your library. We hope you'll join us for desserts during this design presentation. Julie Marie will share her project-based and inquiry-based programming ideas that ignite a passion for reading even before authors arrive to your library. Hands-on collaborative and technology-rich activities, event planning tips, and funding possibilities will also be discussed. Can't convince your principal to spend the money on an author? We'll talk about advocacy and linking author events to standardized test scores.
