Team,

I have a few responses to recent conversations on our listserv and thought I’d streamline (not spam) emails with a combination response:


  1.  In regards of sharing the LAL winning letters with authors, I appreciate y’all’s ideas! I’ve started tweeting to the author and publisher every year. It’s exciting when Rick Riordan retweet<https://nam01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitter.com%2Fcamphalfblood%2Fstatus%2F1001852251907002382&data=02%7C01%7Crmanley%40tsl.texas.gov%7C2ae8baadbdca4ca6981f08d6a30ed5c2%7Ca4597bff9f384145a0334a2168399a5e%7C0%7C0%7C636875681461791471&sdata=MSabXvbObWMHhT2BGw7QLwC6NlyYzRPhovlc9Cz%2F8dc%3D&reserved=0>s!
  2.  Veteran Program/Resources: We do a statewide community read every two years. Our theme for 2017 was Read Across Texas: The Veteran Experience. If y’all wanted to see those resources, we keep the site up: https://www.tsl.texas.gov/readacrosstexas/veteranexperience and I must say that we modeled our program after Cal Humanities and The California Center for the Book’s “War Comes Home<http://www.calhum.org/initiatives/war-comes-home>” initiative. (Thanks again, CA for all your support!)
  3.  Finally, we just launched our Read Across Texas “Know Your Neighbor”<https://www.tsl.texas.gov/readacrosstexas> for this year. If y’all are interested in attending our “how to” webinar on Tuesday (or just receiving the recording) here are the details<bit.ly/2TQsoZp>.

Finally, thank you Guy and team for the stipend support. It is MUCH appreciated!

Warmly,

Rebekah

Dear Affiliate Center Coordinators,

I am happy to tell you that I learned yesterday that we can recommend $500 for each affiliate center attending the June 25 Idea Exchange in Washington to help defray your cost to attend.
Please contact Staceya Sistare if you attending this meeting and will need assistance. This stipend is per center, not per person, in case you are sending more than one attendee.

I am also looking into getting a block of lower-cost hotel rooms that you can book. More info soon.

And I will be sending you a draft agenda soon, for your input and comments.

Thanks and I look forward to a great meeting and seeing all of you.
