Lisa Sees Cecil

Can you guess who Peepy and I saw recently? Hmmmm . . .


(Um, to avoid THIS CONFUSION, lemme just say that no, it's not Lisa See's Cecil or Lisa See Cecil, it's Lisa Sees Cecil.)

Yes! We went to our friend Cecil Castellucci's book signing for her TWO new books!!!!

There were lovely treats . . .

(Anji Williams, a WONDERFUL TEACHER and all-around cool person, made the sandwiches.)

The last time we saw Anji, she was looking like this. . .
(Um, that's Anji on the right. CLICK HERE to find out where we were and the wonderful stuff that was going on.)

Oh! Back to the bookstore. Peepy shared a chocolate cupcake with her friend Violet . . .

Then the gala event began as Cecil read from her first picture book, GRANDMA'S GLOVES . . .

The book was so lovely and poignant that people (me) and Peeps (she) cried.

Next, Cecil and her friends from the NY School of Performing Arts acted out a chapter from ROSE SEES RED, her new novel. It was soooo fun! Peepy even worked her way up to the front to perform with them . . .

BTW, I sat in the front row and was able to snap these shots of these chic shoes . . .

However, I think Teen's Dr. Seuss Converse won the Coolest Shoes Award . . .

Speaking of young people (as opposed to old people, which would be me), recently I was interviewed by Molly Kateri, a grad student at New School. She's started her own YouTube Channel and posts her talks with authors, like me and Cecil! Here's how mine went.

Signing off from Skylight Books!!!
