Connection, Curation, Connection #4

Certainly a highlight of this week was reading all the tweets filling our collective feeds with news of the second annual #nErDcampMI held in Parma, Michigan this year.  Don't miss the links so you can share in this day of learning and celebrating the best things being done in education, books and reading.  Also people are reading up a storm posting all those books they love by using the #bookaday hashtag.  Enjoy the collected tweets and updated collections below.  Take time for reading.  Have a great week.

Walter Dean Myers---These are the collected tweets and conversations beginning on July 2, 2014 as word of this wonderful man's passing was spread.

Ivan-A Gorilla-A Mighty Silverback---January 2012 welcomed a new book by Katherine Applegate, The One and Only Ivan.  A work of fiction, based upon the real Ivan living in Zoo Atlanta, impacted the reading community as only a powerful story can. On Monday August 21, 2012 Ivan passed away. This is what happened on Twitter then and now.
