She’ll be swell, she’ll be great . . .


. . . and she’s got SLJ on her plate! Today Chelsey Philpot becomes the former editorial assistant at the Horn Book Guide as she begins her reign as assistant editor for School Library Journal‘s book review section and managing editor for the Second Helpings newsletter. We sent Chelsey off to New York with all our best wishes, a membership to MOMA and a dvd set of the first season of That Girl. Brian, Trev, Luann–be NICE. You are very lucky to have her.
