A String Of Bright Lights

A String of Bright Lights: Great Blogs about Children's and Young Adult Literature by Pooja Makhijani is available at Paper Tigers. Pooja doesn't just list some great blogs; she also reveals the hardest thing about a blog: finding a name.

In full disclosure, I must say that Pooja calls Tea Cozy a "must read".

By happy coincidence, Pooja was recently at my place of work, giving a presentation called MORE THAN MONKEYS, MAHARAJAHS AND MANGOES: An Overview of South Asian Literature for Kids. (Yes, MPOW provides this type of inhouse workshop all the time; how cool is that?) It was very informative; contained the type of information that I'm ashamed to say I didn't know about the South Asian immigrant experience in the US; and left me scribbling tons of titles to take out of the library. If you have the chance to go to one of her presentations, go!

Thanks for the shout out and your kind, warm words, Liz. It was an absolute pleasure to meet you in person. I hope we can do it again soon!

What a great piece, full of compliments for so many well-deserving blogs! Kudos for your inclusion. :)

Good luck to Pooja on picking a name. It will strike you, and when it does, it will be perfect! (BTW, I absolutely adore the logo at papertiger.)
