I am doing a series of interviews with invited guest speakers and other conference attendees: a Pre-AFCC 2013 Glitter, if you will. A shower of golden fairy dust and pixie glitter and virtual confetti to signal the coming of the Asian Festival of Children’s Content this year!
Today I am introducing something different, as I will be sharing about a panel that I am very proud to moderate, the Children, Speak Up! Panel happening on the 28th of May 2013, 530-630 pm at the Visitors’ Briefing Room of the Central Public Library.
I have been meeting with these hardworking and talented young readers for several consecutive Sundays now to prepare for their presentations. To say that they are excited would be an understatement. We have also invited the amazing kidlit book blogger, Erik Weibel of This Kid Reviews Books fame to be with us via Skype. Check out Erik’s post about the event.
Rather than do an email interview with the Children, Speak Up! Panel, I thought it would be lovelier if you actually see and hear them invite you all to the festival. Here is a teaser from the kids that I put together for your enjoyment.
Here are some of the gorgeous photographs that my own eleven year old daughter, Myka Aaviela, has taken from several of our meetings. Hope you enjoy them!
