Happy Thanksgiving!


On Tues. 11/18/20 I did an interview via email with Glenn Evans, a reporter for the Longview News-Journal, Longview, Texas. You can read his piece at http://www.news-journal.com/search/content/features/stories/2008/11/19/11192008_truly_thankful.html Check out the very cool “click-2-listen” feature at the top of the article “Table Talk: Experts discuss the origins of Thanksgiving traditions.” In the last paragraph, the reporter misattributed a quote from me to “Oliver,” and the newspaper printed a correction in Friday’s paper. I relate that incident because educators/librarians frequently ask me about “accuracy,” i.e. how to ensure it, check for it, etc. There’s no surefire way, I reply, because unintended things–new discoveries, mistakes, etc.–happen to even scrupulous writers. So, check, double-check, & maintain a healthy skepticism. Elizabeth Bird, senior children’s librarian, New York Public Library, posted a review at http://www.schoollibraryjournal.com/blog/1790000379/post/1070036907.html Check out what Jeremy Brunaccioni wrote at: http://blogs.scholastic.com/kid_lit/2008/11/picture-book–2.html Fran Hawk at http://www.charleston.net/news/2008/nov/25/ideas_make_children_feel_special62882/ Terri Schlichenmeyer at: http://tri-statedefenderonline.com/articlelive/articles/3317/1/Book-Review-Thanksgiving-The-True-Story/Page1.html
