Project ALA

It won't be long before the next big ALA kid's book gala where this year's Newbery and Caldecott Awards etc. will be presented. When doing a quick search, I came across this funny mash up of red carpet fashion. It involves "four days at ALA, three intrepid interviewers, two expensive video cameras & one $3.99 red bath mat (aka red carpet)". It's a virtual who's who of kid's books with Jon Scieszka (who was at the time the Children's Literary Ambassador, Betsy Bird, Roger Sutton (editor of The Horn Book)Laurie Halse Anderson, Ellen Hopkins, Linda Sue Park and John Green all making red carpet appearances. The fashionistas all agree that success is "all about the story". There are also a series of interviews as well if you want to check those out too. Enjoy!
