Discussion Carmen Agra Deedy at ALA Midwinter

by Doris Gebel on Fri, Dec 23, 2016 at 06:33 am

“The Rooster Who Would Not Be Quiet” Friday, January 20th 2017. 8-9:30pm. Atlanta, GA  Room: Georgia World Congress Center, A302

From fables to folktales to farmland, we all know that roosters crow at dawn. They also sing in the afternoon, the evening, and in the middle of the night. In short, roosters crow when they wish, and that is all there is to that.

“The Rooster Who Would Not Be Quiet” Friday, January 20th 2017. 8-9:30pm. Atlanta, GA  Room: Georgia World Congress Center, A302

From fables to folktales to farmland, we all know that roosters crow at dawn. They also sing in the afternoon, the evening, and in the middle of the night. In short, roosters crow when they wish, and that is all there is to that.

Much like those noisy roosters, a human child is born with a voice that is strong and true and often irrepressible. Then, for better or worse, by the time most of us reach adulthood we learn to silence that pure, joyful voice––but is it lost forever?

Join storied New York Times Best-selling author, Carmen Agra Deedy, as she presents a spirited defense of free speech and reads from her new book, The Rooster Who Would Not Be Quiet, illustrated by Newbery Honor Award-Winner Eugene Yelchin, published by Scholastic Press.

USBBY will also announce the 2017 Outstanding International Books list at this meeting.
