The Edge of the Forest:: February, 2008:

Now, for your reading pleasure this lovely weekend: The Edge of the Forest:: February, 2008

So, why are you still here? Go, go! And tell me your favorite article.

I like A Backward Glance by Candice Ransom, even tho I was never a Trixie Belden girl myself (Nancy Drew and Happy Hollisters and Cherry Ames for me.)

But there's also Christine's interview with P.J. Hoover. Surprisingly, there is no T.J. Hooker reference. Uma.... Oprah... PJ.... TJ. OK, it's a pop culture reference that makes sense in my head.

But I think it's Little Willow's bit on YA Lit that makes me smile. If I had a million dollars, on my "to do" list would be to get LW a membership in YALSA and get that girl on the BBYA committee.

Oh, wow. Thank you so much.

PJ Hoover said...

I see the link!
Hmmm, though. Hoover. Hooker.

And I was so a Trixie Beldon girl. Loved her even more than Nancy.

Wow. (for fear of sounding ignorant) I had never heard of "The Edge of the Forest" until recently. It's really cool.

Hey Liz! Some of my customers/friends/awesome teens are entering the YALSA songwriting contest. There's a spot on the entry form that asks for the signature of a YALSA member, so they wanted to know if that needs to be signed off ahead of time, or if that's a generic space which gets signed upon receipt at YALSA's end. Let me know if they DO need a YALSA person to sign. I'll email this to you too. :)

If they need my sig & member number, just email me. Sounds cool!
