ACL Meeting Friday, November 10, 2023: Just a quick reminder for our Bay Area members! Please join us for our ACL Meeting on Friday, Nov. 10, 2023, from 10:30am-Noon (note new start time). We will be meeting over Zoom. The link will be sent to all members later this week.
For our professional development session, Linda Perkins will be giving a history on the Pura Belpre Award, established in 1996 to honor children’s books that portray the Latino experience. Linda Perkins was the president of the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC, a division of ALA) at that time. She was also head of youth services in Berkeley and is a longtime ACL member.
We will also hear about the latest Outstanding books that are reviewed, and our Distinguished books.
