Great one. I was a Papertiger earlier this week, too. Yep, adding Chasing Ray.

Alice Walker has a new poem up on her blog called, "Loving Our Leaders" that is worth a look!

Thanks for adding What a Girl Wants! Reminded me that the deadline's coming up...you should chime in here, Susan--or add your answers to the comments on Colleen's blog. I think that was a great suggestion to include librarians and other youth workers/parents...maybe Edi should do a librarians' version! there are so many great librarians blogging these days, and I just told a BK one that you all need a PR campaign to update your image--folks don't yet know just how diverse and dynamic librarians are...

I was going to suggest the post at Chasing Ray too! I'll check out the Wanting Mor interview. :D
