Two @ TLA

TLJ 88-4-Conf cover

The Texas Library Association Conference program just came in the mail, and I’m very excited to be speaking at two sessions on Friday, April 26, 2013, in Fort Worth.  The first will be titled “Is the End of Reading Here?” based upon my research on the metaphors we read by.  And extended discussion of those metaphors and their connection to democratic ideas is here.

The second will be a workshop in which I share the 21 visual formats I’ve developed for handmade thinking, examples from my students – many of which I’ve shared here, and then I will practice with those attending how they might use those formats to respond to short poems and stories.
