March 24, 2022
Annual business meeting for members only
The Guild’s March meeting will be on Zoom at 7 pm (not 1 pm!) on Thursday March 24, 2022. Our speakers will be Madelyn Rosenberg and Wendy Shang, who have collaborated on novels including THIS IS JUST A TEST, a Sydney Taylor Honor winner, and NOT YOUR ALL-AMERICAN GIRL, a Junior Library Guild selection. They will discuss the inspiration for their books and what makes for a successful artistic collaboration. Madelyn is the author of more than a dozen books for kids of all ages; recent work includes CYCLOPS OF CENTRAL PARK, an Ezra Jack Keats Award Honoree, and ONE SMALL HOP. Wendy’s books include THE GREAT WALL OF LUCY WU, an Asian/Pacific American Library Award for Literature recipient, and the 2022 American Girl of the Year books, CORINNE and CORINNE TO THE RESCUE.
This is our annual business meeting, so it is members-only. Hope you can all make it! Please register for this meeting as usual and if you have not received the Zoom link by the morning of 3/24/22, please email Ann McCallum Staats. She’s our awesome new registrar and is trying to fix any and all bugs in our registration system – thanks, Ann!
