Conversation Starter: Storytime: Not Just Reading Out Loud Program Las Vegas Convention Center
N239/241
Description :

Storytime presenters can get caught up in books—we’re librarians, after all! But reading is only 20% of the ECRR2 early literacy practices; the initiative asks us to sing, talk, play, and write as well. That means we should be spending at least as much time planning our songs and our play, letter knowledge, and response activities as we do planning our books. Join the Storytime Underground Joint Chiefs to learn about great storytime resources and share your best practices for widening parent and child horizons when it comes to early literacy. Parachutes, felt boards, and beyond!

Producer, narrator and granddaughter CC Goldwater takes viewers on a cinematic journey into the life of Barry Goldwater in her first film, MR. CONSERVATIVE: GOLDWATER ON GOLDWATER. The film reveals Goldwater as a man either glorified or vilified by the American public. It traces the roots of Goldwater’s conservative philosophy, conveys how he united the conservative movement to lead the Republican Party into a new generation of politics and demonstrates how his consistently Libertarian mindset led him to diverge from the Conservative party orthodoxy in the ‘80s and ‘90s.

Auditorium Speaker Series featuring Jane Fonda Speaker series Las Vegas Convention Center
N249
Description :

Jane Fonda is a legendary Oscar- and Emmy-winning actress, successful producer, fitness guru, #1 New York Times bestselling author, and activist and advocate on issues ranging from the environment to human rights. You might be less aware that her focus for almost 20 years has been on adolescent reproductive health and the empowerment of women and girls. Fonda will offer informative options for a large number of your patrons and students, drawing on her forthcoming book “You, Your Body, Your Life.” Join us for a unique Auditorium Speaker session on a critical topic.
“You, Your Body, Your Life” (March 2014, Random House) is a frank, straightforward and thorough guide to the body, sexuality, pregnancy prevention and STIs, identity, friendship, family, feelings and more. It is informed by Fonda's personal experience working in the field of adolescent sexuality and development with young people and experts at The Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Power & Potential, which she founded in 1994, and Emory University's Jane Fonda Center for Adolescent Reproductive Health, which she founded in 2001, as well as two years of independent research. It addresses her conviction that young people are still not getting the information they need.
