Hmmm . . . where were we? Oh, yes! HERE!
So then, amazing authors and illustrators, editors and agents, were EVERYWHERE. It was as if they had all converged at at the SCBWI Conference, although some behaved better than others.
Here's three time Newbery Honoree, and this year's Golden Kite winner for fiction, Jenni Holm and her friend having some quality quiet time (inside and outside) . . .
Peepy was thrilled to see author, friend, and NPR Wait Wait . . . Don't Tell Me producer Emily Ecton. (Here's what happened when I went to one of the shows.) Anyway, Peepy begged to be on the radio, but her audition did not go well.
We crashed an illustrators social and observed them running around the room waving cards in the air. Speaking of illustrators, we ran into our friend and sorta neighbor Lisze Bechtold . . .
Arthur Levine, my editor extraordinaire, celebrated the 15th Anniversary of Arthur A. Levine Books with a lunch (and dessert) with his authors who were attending the conference. Look! It's his summer intern, Bobbie Pyron, me, Arthur, Greg Pincus, Mike Jung, Martha Brockenbrough and Dan Santat . . .
The Gotham Group had a party and we were invited!
It was a blast introducing Emily Ecton and agent Brenda Bowen. Earlier this year Brenda was on Wait Wait . . . Don't Tell Me and Emily had produced the show --- but the two had never met in person before!
Much more went on, and we'll blog about that soon. In the meantime, here's Peepy and her friend Henry Winkler. (He wore yellow in her honor.)
