I had planned to do a Kid Lit TV video but it didn't in the end work out for the author ... so I'm going to link to video I found of him talking about his book ... posted by his publisher.  

I hope we hear soon how this is all going to run.  It's hard to figure out what to upload until we understand what the virtual booth will look like.

Hi Julianna,

Our Great Reads/NBF video, featuring Kwame Alexander, can be viewed here:

It features a conversation between Kwame and Tasha Birckhead, public children's librarian, followed by Tasha reading and showing Undefeated.

We presented this as part of our Shelf Life series, so it was a live event with an archived video.

Subject: Examples of NBF Videos Produced by CSLs (not KidLit)
1. Can someone let me know what is the deadline for producing a Video for the NBF?
2. Are there examples of author / book videos produced by a State Library (not KidLit TV) solo? 

Trying to see what we can come up with but really not sure what the parameters are and would like a bit more info before we register with Decibel.

Thanks all.
