"Batman & Bill" screening at AASL 2017

Two months from tonight, at the American Association of School Librarians (AASL) 2017 national conference in Phoenix, AZ, please join me for a special screening of Batman & Bill, the first documentary based on a nonfiction picture book for young readers. It will be followed by a Q&A.

The film is currently screening on Hulu (which offers a free trial if you don't subscribe and won't be at AASL); this is a rare chance to watch the film the way films are intended to be experienced: among a live audience. 

Yes, it is smack dab in the middle of extended happy hour (shout-out to librarians who par-TAY), but I guarantee you it will be worth the interlude. After you see the surprising twists of the story, you will want to go out to celebrate the power of children's literature and toast the underdog...

If you are the emotional type, bring tissues.
