Hello, Everybody! I think I have a good speaker for an upcoming conference. I have just talked to David J. Whitin who wrote "Read Any GGood Math Lately" (pub. Heinemann). He would like to speak to librarians on the subject of understanding math through literature. He'll be speaking in Verona NY next October and in south Carolina next spring in case anyone wants to piggyback on those times.
His topic really fits the new math standards, "Math Their Way", etc. His new book, "It's the Story that Counts", was just published by Heinemann. He teachers at the University of South Carolina. His address: 116 Shadowpine Road Columbia, SC 29212 Phone at home: (803)749-0243
I'd be interested to know if any of you contact him.
He'd be happy to speak at ALA or any of the regional or local meetings.
