Save the date and plan to attend this event that will be of interest to school librarians, youth services librarians, teachers, parents, grandparents… well, almost anyone! Jim Trelease will be retiring from the speaking circuit after January 2008 and this presentation will mark his final public speaking appearance in a NJ venue. As he announces on his site:

“January 2008 will be Jim Trelease’s last month of public seminars. After that his only programs will be for teachers through the Bureau of Educationand Research (BER) and a few isolated librarian conferences. Why retirement? Four grandchildren and a wife who has waited 23 years for him to “come in off the road” to travel with her. (Jim suspects there is an oxymoron in there somewhere.)”

The library has teamed up with several PTOs and the local school board to make this event happen. Trego-Biancosino Hall at Princeton High School seats 770, but arrive early as this free event is sure to draw a crowd.

More details can be found on PPL’s site:

    I heart Jim Trelease. I was lucky enough to hear him in my undergraduate years.
    Go, enjoy, be entertained, get good talking points!
