Melissa Wiley and Quinn Cummings!

Our next chat takes place on Thursday, December 5 at 8 P.M. EST.

Sophie and Kelly and I were tossing around possible topics for our next chat, and homeschooling came up. Seems like librarians are always asking about and wondering about working with homeschoolers. What can they do? What should they do? What works?

So I said, oh, we should have guests. And I had a short dream list of possibilities: the two people who, in talking about homeschooling, makes me want to have kids just so I can homeschool them.

They are, of course, Melissa Wiley and Quinn Cummings. And both these terrific women said YES. So Melissa Wiley (@melissawiley on Twitter) and Quinn Cummings (@quinncy) will be joining us on December 5.

Bios for your reading pleasure:

Melissa Wiley is the author of The Prairie ThiefInch and Roly Make a WishFox and Crow Are Not Friends, and other books for children. Between chapters, she’s raising a brigade of bookworms in sunny San Diego and blogging the adventure at Here in the Bonny Glen.

Quinn Cummings has written the critically acclaimed  NOTES FROM THE UNDERWIRE, THE YEAR OF LEARNING DANGEROUSLY, about her first year  as the least likely homeschool parent ever, and PET SOUNDS, a book of  pet-related essays whose proceeds go to a local animal shelter. She has also  been published in The Atlantic, The Wall Street Journal, Time Magazine, Good  Housekeeping and others. She is also known for her Academy and Golden  Globe-nominated performance in THE GOODBYE GIRL and the television show FAMILY.  She lives in Los Angeles with her family, three pets, and a shocking amount of  pet fur.

And, I also suggest you taking a look at GeekMom Book Dish, with Melissa and Quinn talking about books and pets and stuff.

Can’t wait to chat with you guys on Thursday night! And if you have suggestions for questions to use during the Twitter chat, please let us know!
