>If you have any interest in the Tweetchat Mitali Perkins so kindly organized for me and A Family of Readers, I think you can find the archive here. Mitali asked some great questions and I will follow up on some of them here once I’ve had a chance to do some pondering.

Yesterday, Martha and I had another techno-forward event, a bookstore presentation via Skype. They could see us but we couldn’t see them, so I am freely imagining hordes of attendees. Our editor Marc Aronson has a report.

Tomorrow I am off to New York for the Times Best Illustrated party (did anyone else get a seriously crunchy DIY vibe from the list?), a meeting with our publisher, and breakfast with Anita Lobel, so I can thank her in person for that glorious cover painting.

    >DIY vibe?

  3. Roger Sutton says:

    >Do It Yourself: low-tech (looking, anyway), simple, rustic, handmade (again, -looking). Like my generation's tie-dyed t-shirts and macrame holders for spider plants.

  4. >The booksellers I had dinner with last night (thank you again, Kate!) were heartbroken that Salley Mavor's brilliant Pocketful of Posies, with its vibrant fabric illustrations, was not on the list. I wonder if the nyt best illustrated committee considered it too commercial or something — because the vibe I got from the list was self-consciously hip, quirky, anti-commercial…
