Evanston Public Library

Best of Children's Literature 2018

Unbelievably lucky to have Children's Literature expert Betsy Bird present what can only be described as a rollicking evening covering her recommendations for the Best of Kid Lit 2018! It ran the gamut from laughs -- Betsy's props for the sheer amount of spit in one illustration-- to actual gasps -- are you afraid of scarecrows? Run!

Talking Ramona and Harriet with Children's Librarian Betsy Bird!

Betsy Bird has landed at the Evanston Public Library. Who, you might ask, is Betsy Bird? Well, if you're more into fantasy football than a dream librarian lineup, this is akin to Walter Payton being available for your roster.
