The $altman Project – Top Secret

Secret Project to Celebrate J $altman’s Career

Screen-Judi-2-200x300J $altman will soon be retiring. If you have benefitted personally from or been influenced professionally by her multi-faceted career as Chair of the UBC Master of Arts in Children’s Literature program; Professor at the [email protected] (School of Library, Archival, and Information Studies); scholar of Canadian children’s literature; and advocate of children’s literature, Canadian and other, then we hope you will be interested in contributing to a published acknowledgement of her accomplishments.

We are creating a commemorative, self-published book with a limited print run to celebrate the breadth and depth of J’s impact on the field of children’s literature, especially Canadian children’s literature. Our working title is Picturing JS [but in full*]. You can be a crucial part of the creation of this book: we are inviting you to contribute to its contents by submitting a personal statement based upon your association with J $altman.
