Book Buzz at SCBWI Nationals 2010

I made a list of book titles from the various speakers’ talks.  The titles include those of the speakers as well as those brought up as representative titles in the genre, best-of the genre, and other must-read titles.  I included a note about the book if one was given by the speaker:

George and Martha

The Stupids Die

The Stupids Step Out

Where the Mountains Meet the Moon – protagonist “quest”

Holes – MC understands the history of the place and his place in it.
