I was talking about the Idea Exchange (I think everyone else was as well).

What reimbursement plan are you all referencing?  National Book Festival or for the Idea Exchange?

We are indeed waiting on the reimbursement plan.

 

Question: Maybe it’s in this thread already, but I haven’t seen it. Is there any progress on that digital literary map? Or was it the Pulitzer map?

 

Best,

 

L.

Maybe the idea of “working groups” based on shared programs / interests (as in the establishment or re-establishment) might be a good post-vision all in topic? I know I would love to collaborate more.

 

Guy - did you say we have a new person in charge?

 

All - We cannot book our travel until we get writing confirmation about the reimbursement plan for this year. I am hoping we hear something soon! Are others in the same/similar boat?

Hi all,

 

We also run a Veterans Reading Group program and I would love to share our resources and learn from other states about these types of programs.

 

Best,

Perhaps others doing Veterans reading and writing programs could collaborate on a quick presentation -- or form a working group to share resources and best practices?

Josephine - I would love to hear about the Veterans Writing Programs. We have a Community Conversation with Veterans program that’s growing and programming is usually arts based. 

 

Sharon - good ideas as usual! Always nice to start with a vision and shared goals!

I agree with Sharon about focusing the larger conversation on the network and shared initiatives. 

Julianna, I would enjoy learning about Book to Action! We could present on our Veterans Writing programs. 

 

All best,

Hey all, 

 

Would there be interest in a short share about our Book to Action series at the Ideas Exchange? I’d be happy to share for a few minutes or poster session too. Libraries are doing some really great programming, tacking some important issues.

Sharon—I love these ideas. The future of the state centers and the network as a whole will definitely be front and center in this meeting. We have a new leader, Shari Werb, and she is full of great ideas and eager to chart a more strategic path for the CFB in general and the state centers in particular.

 

Thanks,

Guy

Thanks, Guy! 

 

LAL is clearly on my front burner right now ... but after I sent that I realized that it was a down-in-the-weeds suggestion... And I'm also mindful that a handful of state cfbs don't do LAL ... so perhaps that should be a breakout session or even a virtual meeting in advance of the June gathering?  

 

As a large group, I hope we find space for a visioning discussion, talking about how we can think strategically about the state center for the book network, setting goals that will help us push together toward shared goals, etc.  How might we develop and promote more effectively our role in the Parade of States at NBF, for example?  Is there a way that we might create a shared calendar of events that each of us could point to from our own sites?  We've tried developing new joint programs, but given that the lion's share of us are understaffed and overtaxed, I'd like to think about how we can take what we already do and maximize effects.  

 

I also wonder if we might want to think about adding a poster session segment to the agenda as a way to offer opportunities for individual state centers to present about specific programs. I find these sorts of sessions really terrific at other meetings I attend.
