Jumpin' week, irresistible music

Great news to share:

An interview about the Google Lit Trip I did for Marching is right here on Teaching Books. Thank you Nick Glass for the opportunity! Jerome Burg, the founder of Lit Trips, and I worked for months to get this just right. I'm so thrilled with how it came out. Jerome and I located all the important places in Selma, and then set up the Lit Trip so you can "fly" with the marchers to Montgomery.

And Marching For Freedom made the Publisher's Weekly Best Books of 2009 list! This is a huge honor!

But enough about me. Here is the end-of-the-week launch into the weekend. One of my very favorite songs is Leadbelly's Bring Me Little Water, Silvy.Wonderful, no? (You can download the whole song for a buck at Smithsonian Folkways.)

Now, check this out from VOCO. I love how music travels!


If you haven't heard Sweet Honey in the Rock's version.... listen....
