I'm a teacher librarian & recently started a community based blog for getting boys to read - http://GettingBoysToRead.com. Please send me a friend request if you'd like to network, share ideas, and learn more about getting boys to read.
Interesting you should ask. I had never been except to the free events because a pass can be expensive, but my husband and I WON two passes this year! So we went--I blogged about it on my site, actually because there were a lot of technology elements this year!
Hi Carolyn. Thanks for adding me a friend. I should tell you first, that I LOVE Austin. My good friend is there right now looking for a winter home. I recently put together that the South by Southwest music festival has a "geek" element. That sounds cool. Have you ever been -- to either?. I am on break now so don't know how much time I will have to spend looking around this space, but look forward to the times that I do.
