If you’re going to be at NCTE in Pittsburg the weekend of November 18th (and if you’re not, why aren’t you?), make sure you attend the panel presentation “Beat Bullying with Books: Teens and Character Meet on Common Ground,” featuring CJ Bott, Graham Salisbury, Laurie Halse Anderson, and James Howe. CJ is an expert on bullying in the classroom, and the other folks have written a couple of books you might recognize.

The panel 2:30-5pm Friday.
