God, there’s a lot going on, and I haven’t even written my reviews yet. Katrina and Cathie Mercier and I have been finishing up the planning for this year’s Horn Book at Simmons colloquium. (When I am old and being interviewed by Leonard Marcus, if he asks “What did you learn at the Horn Book?” I will reply “how to spell the word colloquium.”) Robin Smith has just signed on to talk with Betty Carter and honorees Joyce Sidman, Rick Allen, and Martin Jenkins about picture book nonfiction; and Macmillan/Roaring Brook’s Simon Boughton has just joined our panel discussion about publishing for the 21st century. I hope you can attend!
Come spend the day with us
