We’re still here

IveStillHair Were still herebut a little hard to reach. Boston was barely brushed by Sandy–we had wind and some rain but never lost power–but our email server sits in Soho in a currently shuttered building. Our LJ and SLJ colleagues are all working from home (or friends’ homes!) via the web, Twitter, Facebook and cell phone. Prayers and good wishes to them all.

If you need to get in touch with us, our office phones are working and you can reach us on Twitter at @hornbook (general queries) or @RogerReads (if you need me). Or just pop any questions at the bottom of this post. We soldier on: Look in your email this afternoon for the debut issue of Nonfiction Notes from the Horn Book, which is being sent to all subscribers of Notes from the Horn Book; and tomorrow begins our celebration of Picture Book Month (yeah, who knew?) with the online-only publication of Barbara Bader’s “Absorbing Pictures and What They Say,” an invitation to look closely at what different artists can make of the same scene or theme. And next Wednesday, I’ll be hosting a live webcast with Lois Lowry; tune in.
