1. Magneto Meets His Last Days in Secret Wars

By Davey Nieves

LAST DAYS 195x300 Magneto Meets His Last Days in Secret Wars

Marvel pulled another piece out of their Secret Wars puzzle box today when they announced, on Newsarama, the ongoing Magneto book by writer Cullen Bunn and artist Javi Fernandez would be under the umbrella of the Last Days banner during Secret Wars. Starting with May’s issue #18, the master of magnetism faces off against the end of the world in a four issue story the writer described as being about Magneto’s legacy. He’ll see the events leading up to end of the Marvel 616 and attempt to use every bit of his power to halt them.

The arc is also set to feature appearances from Briar, the Marauders and various S.H.I.E.L.D. agents who’ve been in pursuit of Magneto throughout the series. Readers will also see a surprise appearance in the form a character related to Magneto with a controversial past. With the terminability surrounding these Last Days tie-in books it would suggest an end to the series and maybe even the character himself upon conclusion. Could Marvel be revealing what characters won’t make it into Secret War? Magneto was a major part of the original 1984 Secret Wars, but it looks also though he may not even make it to this one. When asked if this would be the series finale Cullen Bunn had this to say: “If the book were to end, I think this arc would wrap things up quite nicely,” Bunn explains. “But what I’m doing also positions Magneto for some really exciting stuff that’s coming up. Really, do you think something like the end of the world is going to stop the Master of Magnetism?”

No other story details were revealed but we expect to hear more soon as the rest of the tie-in books are revealed including titles for the other two banners Battleworld and Warzones!.


 

What do you think of Marvel’s latest tease? Could Marvel leave Magneto out of their new world order?

4. An MLK day story on the importance of librarians and archivists

Amy Goodman from Democracy Now interviews Brian DeShazor the director of the Pacifica Radio Archives. He talks about finding a lost speech of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

So, this recording, this archive is an American treasure, and every citizen in America, I hope, understands that this collection, we want to be able to make it accessible to you, the public. We want it to be in the classrooms. We want it to be in high schools. We want universities to have this for their scholarly research and their scholarly endeavors. And that will make history change. It will be able to have us, the political left, if you will, the progressive left, the record of the activism available for history in the future. And if we don’t preserve this deteriorating, fragile tape, then that history will be lost, and we’ll lose the connection with our elders, like Dr. King. This very speech, this may have the quote that inspires somebody to take the next step in our fight for racial equality and justice in America.

5. The Morgan Library is Hosting An Alice in Wonderland Exhibit

Alice in WonderlandHow has Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland stood the test of time? The Morgan Library & Museum is hosting an exhibit called “Alice: 150 Years of Wonderland.”

The curators plan to bring over the original manuscript for Carroll’s beloved children’s book “across the pond” from the London’s British Library to New York City. Other items that will be displayed include drawings, letters, rare editions of the book, and vintage photos. The opening date has been scheduled for June 26, 2015 and the closing date has been set for October 11, 2015.

Here’s more about the exhibit: “The enchanting tale of Wonderland was first told ‘one golden afternoon’ to Alice Liddell and her two sisters. Delighted by the fantastic world of logic and nonsense inhabited by rabbits in waistcoats and playing card gardeners, Alice begged for a written copy of her namesake’s adventures under ground. Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (better known by his pen name Lewis Carroll) painstakingly wrote out the story, illustrating the original manuscript with his own pen and ink drawings.” Follow this link to download a free digital edition of the novel.

6. Peachtree Publishers Preview Party

I was invited to the loveliest get-together Sunday. Margaret Quinlin, publisher at Peachtree Publishers invited librarians, teachers, creators, influencers, and me to her lovely home in Atlanta, where Peachtree editors, publicists and art directors showcased and talked about their new book releases for Spring 2015.

It was fascinating hearing the background behind the creation process and lovely to see everybody's passion for their work. I took some truly candid photos of the event (shared with Margaret's blessing). Here's Stephanie Fretwell-Hill talking about STANLEY THE FARMER and SPECTACULAR SPOTS by Susan Stockdale:

Tom Gonzalez gave a fascinating talk about his process for TOAD WEATHER:

Vicky Holified talked about the latest book by Adrian Fogelin, SOME KIND OF MAGIC.

Also, Loraine Joyner (art director) talked about P. ZONKA LAYS AN EGG by Julie Patchkis, and Kathy Landwehr talked about RODEO RED, written by Maripat Perkins and illustrated by Caldecott Honor-winning Molly Idle (who has visited my blog a few times). All said, it was a fantastic glimpse into these great new books and the journey behind them.
Some of the original pieces form the books were showcased in Margaret's dining room:


It was so nice to be invited to this party as I have several friends at Peachtree. I couldn't help grabbing selfies with several of them. Like...
Kathey Lanwehr (editor), Me, and Christine, the former New York librarian and newest publicist has been doing a great job reaching out to help spread the word about this fresh crop of fantastic books.

Here I am with Loraine and Stephanie:

And me and Mia Manekofsky, Decatur children's librarian and awesome person.

Tom and me.

Thanks to Margaret, Christine and everybody at Peachtree. It was a great party and introduction to Peachtree's lovely new books as well as a fascinating glimpse into the tight team you have there. It's no wonder Peachtree has gained such a strong reputation for great books in the kid lit world.

9. IMAX to Host Game of Thrones Screenings

got logoThe Game of Thrones HBO series is heading to 150 IMAX theaters. This will be the first time a television show gets displayed on these giant screens.

The final two episodes from season four will be shown along with an exclusive trailer for season five. These screening events will take place from January 23rd to 29th all over the United States.

Here’s more from The New York Times: “The move signals a continued blurring of the lines among media platforms, where digital videos, television series and films stream across a proliferation of screens, from tiny mobile phones to movie theaters. It also shows the extent to which media companies are trying to turn their blockbuster hits into mega events, as drawing mass audiences becomes increasingly rare.”

17. John C Campbell Wrap-up

My last time to teach "Creating Children's Picture Books" at the John C. Campbell Folk School (because we're moving to Scotland) could not have gone better!
     On the way up on Wednesday, I had lunch with Doris Abernathy and Dale McKay Wagner (A BIRD ON WATER STREET is dedicated to Doris), and some of their friends in Blue Ridge. We were celebrating their birthdays - Doris' 87th! Gads, I love her!
     Then, on to the folk school... I had an especially inspired group of five students - the perfect size for the classroom. This was our view:

     Truly, all my students were engaged, inquisitive and highly participatory, taking my advice, and offering great advice to their fellow writers too. Their manuscripts were promising and they made fantastic progress during class. It was an absolute treat for me!
     Add to that, Thursday night was wreath-making night. An enormous amount of greens and berries from all over the grounds was collected and piled up in the community room, where we were all given straw wreath rounds and pins to assemble unique creations. By the end, our hands were covered with sap, lemon and lime juice and cedar. They served hot chocolate and played Christmas music. What a way to get in the Christmas spirit!
     All the creations were gorgeous, and they use them to decorate the school. Here I am with one of my students and the two wreaths we created hanging above us, and then me with three of my students and more wreaths:



     Even nicer, Harold Underdown donated a copy of his latest, 2015 Children's Writer's and Illustrator's Market, to become part of the permanent collection in the writing studio at John C., "Orchard House." Wasn't that generous of him? I hope to have him on soon to talk more about this great resource.
     The reason John C needed decorations was for the Fireside sale which was Sunday. Sadly, I missed that part as I needed to get home for Stan's work Christmas party Saturday night (way fun!). But I really wanted to pick up some Alpaca socks from a local vendor. So I arranged to meet him at his farm after the closing ceremony. What a gorgeous place it was, with all those fuzzy adorable alpacas everywhere! Have you discovered alpaca socks? They are like pockets of joy for my feet. SO COZY!
     Then I headed to lunch with some life-long friends in Murphy (from when we lived up in the mountains)... Hi Toni, Lisa, Deb and Lynne - love you guys! We ate at Doyle's, a restaurant with a great view of the Murphy Christmas parade - in the pouring down rain! It was still fabulous.
     All said, good-byes are hard, but I'm so grateful to have such great friends and experiences to miss!

18. Brooklyn Borough Hall to Host the ‘Friar Francis: Traces, Words and Images’ Exhibit

BK Borough HallBrooklyn Borough Hall will host the “Friar Francis: Traces, Words and Images” exhibition.

This event marks the first time Saint Francis’ manuscripts have left Italy in 700 years. These papers will be on display in the rotunda of this New York City-based building until mid-January 2015.

Here’s more from The New York Times: “The signature of the saint of the poor and neglected, who inspired Pope Francis to choose his name, is nowhere to be seen. Historians agree that he most likely dictated his writings, but certainly his hand touched the papal bulls that in the 1220s registered the pope’s messages to the order. However, these 19 artifacts are the most ancient documents of St. Francis’ life and theological tradition.”

24. DC Announces final week of Convergence with pre-Crisis characters

And the final week of Convergence  mini-series has been announced, with characters from the ancient Pre-Crisis on Infinite Earths world, with a little oddball stuff like the Crime Syndicate. Announcements were made at EW and Newsarama. The previous weeks of COnvergence—the two issue moving fill-in event that will help ease DC’s staff into their new West Coast home—focused on different eras. Week one was pre New 52; week 2 was the 90s, and week three was the 80s. And now we’ve gone back to the protean slurry.

25. Layla at NCTE / ALAN: Event Recap

Happy December! So I had a book adventure / conference adventure right before Thanksgiving, which was appropriate because as a Layla, I am perpetually thankful for books. Two weeks ago, I attended the annual meeting of the National Council of Teachers of English (as well as the workshop on YA Lit that followed the conference, ALAN). This year’s conference was held in Washington, D.C., which is close-ish to where I live in North Carolina, so it seemed like a good year to go. An added bonus – I had a group of friends who were already going, one of whom was a seasoned ALAN veteran who promised to show me the ropes. Road trips! Learning! D.C.! Count me in. Although I went to NCTE for professional reasons, it turned out to be unexpectedly and delightfully relevant to my work as a reader and blogger. Conferences in my field primarily consist of different panels... Read more »
