Met up with old pal (as in I've known her for a long time), Elise Broach, on the right, and finally got to meet Natalie Standiford.
Wait, there's more . . . look, it's Bennett Madison!
The four of us debated the misuse of who/whom, which one of us should run for president, and advanced algebra.
The next day, it was back to BEA. So, so, so fun seeing friends, like Egmont VP/Publisher Elizabeth Law . . .
NY TIMES bestselling author Lisa McMann and I rendezvoused for the second time in a month . . .
Oh, look! John Rocco's new book with our Young People's literature ambassador, Katherine Paterson . . .
(John was also there for the unveiling of his latest Rick Riordan book cover.)
It's always great to see Megan McDonald, here with JUDY MOODY a.k.a. Jordanna Beatty.
What's that? What does Jordanna have to say about Peepy? Let's find out . . .
Michael Northrup was walking looking inconspicuous with a chic Peep . . .
This unassuming multiple Caldecott Honor winner is from our hometown-ish . . .
I waited in line for Tom Perrotta's new book THE LEFTOVERS. (I've read EVERYTHING he's ever written, well except for his cancelled checks.)
Speaking on lines, here's mine for my American Girl KANANI signing . . .
It was lunch with the gals, Sarah Darer Littman and Julia DeVillers and we discussed global warming, geometry and, er, the dearth of pronouns . . .
One of us was celebrating a birthday, but I won't say who/whom. However, here's a hint . . .
Later, we went out for birthday drinks with NY TIMES bestselling Peter Brown . . .
Here's Peter with a very special well-thought out message to us all . . .
The signing for my American Girl 2011 Girl of the year KANANI books went great! I signed several million copies (more or less) . . .
Oh! And I can't forget, we also ran into Coe Booth and Editor/Author/Everything NY TIMES bestselling (they were everywhere!) author David Levithan. Here's some really, really, deep stuff they had to say.
The evening was tres exciting because it was KidLit Drink Night, benefiting, RIF!!! But I'll blog about that next so you can rest your eyeballs.
In the meantime, here's a preview pic of an unnamed editor and Newbery Award winner at the event . . .
