DAY 7: Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast (Let's Get Busy podcast Blog+Pod Tour)

Let's Get Busy podcast Blog+Pod Tour DAY 7: Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast
Today Julie Danielson of Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast interviews me about podcast highlights over the past 100th episodes, ways in which past guests have expanded my view of picture books, and future plans and big dreams for LGB. 
Jules' blog is always on the top of my reading list. Her love for the picture book as a high form of art and storytelling is something that comes through in each of her posts. Her interviews are insightful and packed with original art, sketches, and drafts from her guests, and I completely lose myself in the post every time she has someone new visit. It's a great honor for me to join Jules as a guest and it's a connection I'm thankful to have made. I sincerely hope you'll enjoy reading the interview. If you do, be sure to tell Jules what you think of the interview by leaving her a comment on Seven Impossible Things.

Enjoy!

Support LitWorld Libraries on December 2nd for Giving Tuesday

Thanksgiving Day. Black Friday. Cyber Monday.

Giving Tuesday.
Giving Tuesday (@GivingTues) is the non-profit world's answer to Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

WHAT IS #GIVINGTUESDAY
We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give. 
It’s a simple idea. Just find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to come together to give something more. Then tell everyone you can about how you are giving. Join us and be a part of a global celebration of a new tradition of generosity.

LitWorld, the organization behind World Read Aloud and a tremendous advocate for worldwide literacy, is taking an active role #GivingTuesday.
As shared on LitWorld's blog,
#GivingTuesday is a day when people across the country come together to support the world-changing work they care about. It is becoming as universally recognized as “Black Friday,” “Small Business Saturday,” and “CyberMonday.” LitWorld is celebrating with a special campaign during our Annual Appeal.

Our #GivingTuesday goal is to raise $10,000 to support and grow LitWorld libraries. Our community libraries around the world provide access to books, technology and safe spaces where our programs run. What makes this campaign extra-exciting? All donations will be matched dollar for dollar, doubling the impact of your gift. A gift of $35 during our #GivingTuesday campaign can stock a shelf of books at a LitWorld library.
LitWorld is an organization deserving of our attention and contributions.

Here are 10 reasons to join LitWorld's #GivingTuesday movement.

Give directly to LitWorld this #GivingTuesday by clicking HERE.

You can also support LitWorld by helping get the word out over social media.

Happy giving and Thanksgiving!
