The World Booktalk Championship takes place each spring. We bring a passionate line-up of educators that create 30-second booktalk videos, hoping to take home the "Vince Lombooki" trophy.


Join my co-host, Jenn LaGarde, and me as we share the best 16 booktalks in the world in one epic video. Avid literacy fans will also want to watch the live-draft over on #30SecondBooktalk to see how our championship bracket came to be. 


Thanks again for celebrating literacy and modeling how fun it can be to talk about the books we love!
