The Children’s Literature Assembly appointed Jennifer Graff, an associate professor in the College of Education, as president-elect; she will become president for the 2016-2017 term.

An affiliate of the National Council of Teachers of English, the Children’s Literature Assembly provides a forum for teachers of children’s literature, promotes children’s literature as a field of learning and research and creates programs for those interested in children’s literature.

The organization also publishes the peer-reviewed Journal of Children’s Literature, selects the national Notable Books for Language Arts book award as well as two professional awards and promotes research through workshops and papers throughout the year.

Graff, who also coordinates the reading endorsement program in the college’s language and literacy education department, chairs the awards committee for the Georgia Children’s Picturebook Award as part of the annual Children’s Book Awards.
