My parents tease me that my "Newbery Project" has made me famous. It hasn't really, but is has made me a little famous with librarians and other people who like children's books. A real published author has even commented on my blog. This has been great fun and really exciting, here are some of the cool places I have been "talked about":
http://www.acplkids.blogspot.com/, this was the first blog that talked about my project. And they invited me to their Mock Newbery event. That was great, everyone should go to one! I hope to go again next year.
www.alsc.ala.org/blog , The Association for Library Service to Children talked about my project around Christmas. This was super cool for lots of reasons but mostly because they are in charge of the Newbery Committee and tons of Librarians came to my blog after that!
https://twitter.com/ICPl , the Iowa City Public Library twittered about my project, which is when I learned about twitter, but I don't tweet yet.
http://www.indystar.com/, the Indy Star is the biggest paper in my area. They have a column in their Sunday paper about what Hoosiers are reading (it is near the Sudoku). And they talked about my project.
http://ofbooksandboys.blogspot.com/, after she read about me in the Indy Star, I made it into this blogger's blog.
http://www.readingrockets.org/blogs/pagebypage, this was super cool because not only was Maria Salvadore on this year's Newbery committee, I got to meet her and talk all about it!
http://lindsayeland.com/ , this is the author that left a comment on my blog (cool!), and she tweeted about me. I am going to read her book soon!
