I had the best Saturday. Just look at this lineup, and you’ll understand why:
Thirty-seven fabulous middle-grade authors took over the gorgeous Jefferson Market Library (which used to be a courthouse and the site of a lot of famous trials; check this out for the library’s history) and turned it into a celebration of kid lit. I was part of the “Creating a Character” group, and I was blown away by the creativity and talent of our kid writers!
After the fun and games, we raffled off prize packs and then did a big, happy signing, with books provided by Books of Wonder.
I wish I had pictures, but I was too busy carnival-ing to take any. So use your imaginations! Picture a lot of smiling kids, caregivers, and authors.
A huge thanks to Claire LeGrand, Lauren Magaziner, and Heidi Schulz for organizing!
Sounds awesome! I often wish I had a vacation apartment in NYC just so I could go to all the fun book-related events… maybe one day when I’m filthy rich 🙂
I support this plan. 🙂
