Welcome to Session 12: Making Bold Choices

16 11 2011

When I first developed this session over ten years ago, Frances Bradburn, our speaker, was the chair of the first-ever Printz Committee and she spoke to our class, face-to-face, on-the-ground, on-campus.  Intellectual freedom was all about a reader’s right to read and an author’s right to create.

My, how things have changed!

In this session, you’ll see Frances aka Reid Nitely present in our virtual world as our avatars gather in the Bookhenge and we’re talking not only about the author’s right to create but the students’ also.
