1. Sadly, panel speaker Rebecca Long was unable to make it to the conference due to a family emergency. However, you can get a sense of her paper (on ‘”The Best of All Worlds”: Border Crossings in Irish Children’s Literature’) through this guest blog post she’s kindly written for us using an excerpt from her paper. You can also email her for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org. http://reading-the-fantastic.tumblr.com/post/117241914456/the-best-of-all-worlds-border-crossings-in

3. Finally, the first Tales Beyond Borders day started with a bang at our PGR/ECR workshop! Thanks to both guest speakers and workshop participants for their wonderful discussions and insights. (You can find more info on our speakers here.)
