Here is the cover, front and back! OUR MEDIA WORLD by Sr. Gretchen Hailer, RSHM and I, will be published by Pauline Books & Media www.pauline.org in January, 2010 (God-willing and nothing unforeseen arises). More information to follow!

Along with our 2007 book MEDIA MINDFULNESS: EDUCATING TEENS ABOUT FAITH & MEDIA (St. Mary’s Press, www.smp.org), with the publication of OUR MEDIA WORLD, teachers, catechists, parents, youth ministers, those engaged in pastoral ministry for parents, clergy, will have a consistent strategy K- 12 for engaging critically and mindfully through the lens of faith in popular culture and the media world.

Here’s a good idea! If you will be attending the National Catholic Education Association conference this week at the convention center in Anaheim, first visit the booth of the Daughters of St. Paul/Pauline Books & Media (booth #634) where I will be signing books (as will Sr. Armanda Santos who has a beautiful new book out on st. Paul and Art).

CATHOLIC LIBRARY ASSOCIATION  (Hyatt Regency Orange County)

Looking at Dark Materials through the Light

Leaders in the faith community are frequently challenged to critique and judge all kinds of media

because we live in a mediated world. We are asked to make informed, pastoral judgments about media that the faithful then challenge. What’s a librarian or teacher to do when the only constant thing about any media is that they are inconsistent — or are perceived to be? This presentation will consider guidelines and criteria for navigating the media products of our culture in ways

that are consistent with principles of Catholic education and pastoral practice.

A handout will be provided and clips will be integrated into the seminar.
