WELCOME! Once a month, usually on a Thursday evening, a group of writers, illustrators, teachers and librarians meets in the Los Feliz area of Los Angeles to discuss children's books. Usually we talk about one picture book and one middle grade or YA novel. After the meeting, Sandy Schuckett, a retired LAUSD librarian, summarizes our discussion. Here are her reports of our thoughts about the books we have read. We'd love to have your comments too!
Thanks to Nancy Hayashi for our wonderful title art! Our group has been meeting since 2007. It was organized under the auspices of the Children's Literature Council of Southern California (CLCSC).

Celebrating the 10th Anniversary of BOOK CHAT THURSDAY

It was ten years ago in October that our group of children’s book librarians, authors, illustrators, teachers and other lovers of children’s literature began meeting about once a month to discuss children’s books as we enjoyed a selection of munchies brought by our members. We are grateful to all our members who have held the meetings at their houses, but particularly Ann Whitford Paul whose house is our usual meeting place. And we are grateful to Sandy Schuckett for keeping us informed via email, writing our monthly blog reports, and for bringing the delicious celebratory chocolate cake that you see in the photo! Book Chat Thursday is one of the several regional discussion groups organized through the Children’s Literature Council of Southern California.
