The Tweens Read Book Festival in Houston.

I am heading to  Festival in Houston. This rodeo goes down on Saturday and though its my first time appearing there, I am entirely fired up.

How can you not love the celebration of kids reading books? Truly, every major city in the United States of America could take a lesson from the good folks who organized this shin-dig.

Bunches of authors. Scores of librarians. Droves of teachers. And of course kids, kids, kids hungry for books, books, books.

As the program rhetorically asks

Who is invited to participate?

  • The target audience is tweens who are in grades 5-8.
  • We welcome teachers, librarians, parents, and other advocates for childrens and adolescent literacy attending with their tweens.

What more could a person want? And is there a better way to spend a Saturday? As the good folks ask in TX say, Yall fixin to come?

Hope so. As the ridiculous assault on librarians marches forwards by nincompoop politicians, I wonder if there is a more intelligent way to battle the nitwits than through positive experiences such as this?
