I’ve just swung back by ReaderGirlz, and man, this site for gutsy young women who read — it’s just getting cooler and cooler. A Trés Cool Truth: my Cybil Sister Little Willow designed the ReaderGirlz website!! (Can I tell you that I just can’t wait to become famous so LW can do one for me!) Take a listen to the soundtrack that goes with the reading for this month: girls who believe in Nothing But the Truth (and a few white lies) will relate to the fabulously positive lyrics. (Natasha Bedingfield’s Unwritten is today’s anthem — Today is where your book begins – the rest is still unwritten…) If you have not yet read this book, please, rectify this deficit in your life. Ditto if you haven’t yet seen this site!
I’m proud that this whole thing launched the first of March (on my birthday, because it really is all about ME!) in celebration of Women’s History Month and strong young women in the world of fiction and beyond. Like Cybil Sister Jen’s Cool Girls in KidLit list, I have a feeling that book salon is going to create an positive and unprecedented response! Go ReaderGirlz!!
And speaking of Jen – do check out her recent podcast interview at Kim & Jason’s Escape Adulthood blog. I got advance notice that it would be about Jen from the very cool Jason Himself, and so go enjoy – and be sure to list your favorite children’s book! — just for the fun of it, but you might also win a $20 gift certificate to their very fun Lemonade Stand just for answering the question!
