NCTE 2010 Convention in Orlando

From November 19-21, Annick Press exhibited our titles at the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) convention in Orlando, Florida. Here's our booth:

Lots of high school teachers were looking for books for reluctant readers, so we introduced them to the Single Voice series: each book has two short, edgy stories that appeal to readers aged 14 and up, but the reading level is around third or fourth grade.

Our international titles were also a big hit: Thunder over Kandahar takes place in Afghanistan, Chanda's Secrets, The Bite of the Mango, and Cry of the Giraffe are set in Africa, and Chenxi and the Foreigner unfolds in China.

Thank you to everyone who dropped by our booth to say hi and find out about our titles! Please visit our website to find lists of all our books by theme, to download free lesson plans, or to browse our latest catalogs.
