Michigan Kidlit Advocate: Bridget and the Books
Bridget and the Books is a popular blog run by a Michigan elementary school student, Bridget, and supervised by her mom, Melissa. I’m not sure how I first discovered the blog, but I think it came from several directions at once, including a librarian’s recommendation and this Detroit News article. And then I was delighted when Bridget herself showed up at Book Beat’s 35th-anniversary party this summer. She stopped at every table and asked each of the authors to sign the back of her t-shirt. She was still there hours later with her arms full of books. I was even more delighted when Bridget and Melissa later emailed me to request an author interview. Now it’s my chance to turn the tables and interview them. Introducing Bridget and the Books!
