One of my faves, YA author Lauren Myracle, posted a video on her Web site of her son’s school doing a reading promo video, using a book-related rewrite of the Black-Eyed Peas‘s “I Gotta Feeling.”
It’s called “Gotta Keep Reading.” 🙂
Besides because of its general adorableness, I got psyched because, at the end, one kid holds up a book – QUAKE! Disaster in San Francisco, 1906 – which was written by children’s lit author and fellow Southeastern Writers Association conference presenter Gail Langer Karwoski.

I don’t know why (because it essentially has nothing to do with me), but it made me feel really awesome to have made that connection! It’s just so cool to have interviewed both these women.
