What a fun night we had on Wednesday with Tim Gillespie -- and friends, family, and colleagues -- as Tim read from his newly published book, Doing Literary Criticism: Helping Students Engage with Challenging Texts (Stenhouse Publishers). We love teachers at Broadway Books, and it was so exciting to see a room full of people who truly care about teaching and learning and reading and writing (although we're still not convinced about that whole reading-while-walking thing)!
A big shout-out to Jan for bringing such wonderful treats to turn the evening into more than just a reading, more than just a book launch, but truly a celebration. The night with Tim was so great it was a big challenge to edit the video down to a YouTube-acceptable-sized clip, but here it is. We look forward to Tim coming back to read again when he finishes his book on horse-shoeing (you had to be there).
