Join us on June 9th as we cover the various elements that come together to create a book that kids will love, whether it’s the writing, the illustrations, or another bit of magic. Our panelists will bring different perspectives from the worlds of publishing and libraries for a discussion that will offer a great deal of combined experience in evaluating children’s books and will help you increase your skills and confidence in choosing the best youth titles for your library.

I'd love to have a link to the archive for the above event: Evaluating Youth Lit — What Makes a Good Book Good? By LJ on May 23, 2016. In fact, I'd love to be able to look at the archives for most of your blog events. Is this possible?
