Musings on children's and YA literature, the academy, and the relationship between them, from an English professor and mother.

As I mentioned last month, children's lit bloggers from all over are joining forces for the next month or so to raise awareness for the Robert's Snow snowflake auction. Writer and illustrator Grace Lin and her husband Robert Mercer founded this charity auction three years ago to raise money for the Dana Farber Cancer Center. Sadly, Robert Mercer succumbed to Ewing's sarcoma earlier this year. In his memory, then, the auction will continue this year, with contributions from over 150 children's book illustrators and authors--and with all kinds of bloggers featuring the artwork and promoting the auction. I'll have my little Robert's Snow posting coming up later this week; look in the sidebar in the meantime (and for weeks to come) to find out about all the other fabulous illustrators.
