SLJ Debuts ‘Fuse #8 TV’


Betsy Bird has a TV show. Spinning off Bird’s blog “A Fuse #8 Production” on School Library Journal, “Fuse #8 TV” is a monthly webcast hosted by Bird—and the first episode is now available.

Opening with a brief video starring Bird and fellow blogger Travis Jonker of “100 Scope Notes,” the first episode features Bird’s conversation—recorded live—with authors Kekla Magoon and Coe Booth and was sponsored by Scholastic.

Next on “Fuse #8 TV”: a visit to the Eric Carle Museum as well as a “super secret” guest to be announced, says Bird.
