This past May I had the privilege of participating in the uber-fine Publishing Perspectives Conference, What Makes a Children's Book Great? One expert panel featured Roger Sutton (The Horn Book), Pamela Paul (The New York Times), and David Levithan (Scholastic editor and beloved author) in a conversation hosted by the fantastic Jennifer Brown (Shelf Awareness). I sat in the audience admiring those four—their wit, their knowing, their bookly stature.
Today I learned from the pretty darned perfect Jessica Shoffel at Philomel that I'll be joining David Levithan, Ellen Hopkins, and Jennifer Hubbard at Children's Book World in Haverford, PA for a panel/signing. The date is September 21. The time is 7 PM. I'd love to see you there.
