Castellucci, Perfect Websites, and the Pigeon/Plain Jane Connection
So Cecil Castellucci comes into the library yesterday and we get to chatting about stuff. And since I've just been doing a little "professional development", I cannot help but notice Miranda July's website for her upcoming book. It is, not to put too fine a point on it, perhaps the most original site for a book I've seen. Period. I mention it to Cecil and she has, of course, seen it and agrees with me that it is neat. Blogworthy, perhaps.
I should mention that Ms. Castellucci had come to the Central Children's Room to see Mo Willems perform in my branch (TONIGHT: AT SIX). He once was, and this is true, her mentor. Honest-to-God. Swear to howdy. The kidlit world intersects with the teenlit world at the oddest of junctions sometimes. I will, tonight, inform Mo that he will have to wait until TLA to see her. *sigh*
