Charlesbridge open house


Paul A. Reynolds, author of Full STEAM Ahead!, talks with Cindy Ritter.

Thanks, Charlesbridge, for having us over to your house last week. It was fun to poke around your office in Watertown, MA; see original artwork (Gareth Hinds’s Samurai Rising cover art!); eat some snacks; catch up with friends and former interns; and hear from author Paul A. Reynolds (twin brother of and collaborator with Peter H.) about STEAM and the 4Cs, FableVision, and the new book series Sydney & Simon.

And who was the lovely and talented interviewer? Our good friend and former Horn Booker Cindy Ritter! Great job with the Qs, Cindy. We’re glad the Bay State lured you back from NYC.

Also, how did Charlesbridge’s editorial director Yolanda Scott find the time and energy to compete in — and win — a race that night?! We’ll have what she’s having.
