We were last at the SCBWI Faculty Dinner and Apres Hobnobbing with Kid Lit Celebs . . .
(Above: MT Anderson signs one of Son's three copies of OCTAVIAN NOTHING.)
During the Golden Kite Luncheon, I delivered a tribute to Newbery Award winner Sid Fleischman, who passed away earlier this year. (I was the recipient of the first Sid Fleischman Humor Award in 2004.) He was a mentor and a friend, and longtime supporter of SCBWI.
After, a short video about Sid was shown, then his son, Newbery Award winner Paul Fleischman, presented Allen Zadoff with this year's award for his novel FOOD, GIRLS, AND OTHER THINGS I CAN'T HAVE.
(Peepy and Allen toast his win and her charm.)
There's still much more, including a photo gallery of famous authors, illustrators and editors who got to meet Peepy.
However, until then, here's how children's book people dress for conferences. (Or maybe they're all dolled up for the Heart and Soul Gala Ball?)
However, the belle of the ball was none other than our own Peepy!!! She didn't even have to wear a costume to be the stunner that she is. In fact, our friend Lee Wind even devoted an entire blog to Her Peepness. CLICK HERE to read it.
