The Order of Oddfish


90-Second Newbery on KidLit TV, Good Conversations Podcast, and at San Antonio Bibliotech

April 13, 2015

Thanks Rocco Staino and all the good folks at KidLit TV for having me on their show to talk about the 90-Second Newbery Film Festival back when we did the screening in New York back in March! You can watch the episode above.

I was also recently on Tim Podell’s “Good Conversations” podcast, talking up the film festival. I had the good fortune to meet Tim right after the New York screening. He’s had some great children’s writers on his podcast, like Richard Peck and Phyllis Reynolds Naylor. It was an honor to be on! You can listen to my episode here.

I also recently spoke to folks about the 90-Second Newbery in San Antonio, Texas:

This was all arranged through Bibliotech, an inspiring and innovative “digital library” in San Antonio. I had the pleasure of meeting Judge Nelson Wolff, Laura Cole, Christa Aldrich, and all the folks behind Bibliotech’s success and speak to teachers, librarians, parents, and kids about making their own 90-Second Newbery movies. In fact, the kids at Bibliotech have already made their own 90-Second Newbery of Linda Sue Park’s classic 2002 Newbery Medal winner A Single Shard, and it’s delightful! Check it out:

Thanks, Bibliotech! I’m looking forward to seeing what comes from Texas this year!
