Three Authors and an Editor and a Flea

Thanks to my nifty Time Machine, even though I am back in Southern California, I'm still in NYC!


Yes, after that rousing KidLit Drink Night, the next day was devoted to more food and fun! Why? Because I rendezvoused with these mystery guys . . .

(You are looking at the shoes of three authors and an editor.)

You are correct! It's amazing author Phil Bildner and amazing Disney senior editor Kevin Lewis.

Kevin's one of those classic over-achievers and is also an author. In fact, he wrote one of Son's favorite books when he was younger (um, that is when both Son and Kevin were younger).


Where did we meet? Why here, of course . . .

Excuse me? But where exactly is that, you ask.

Why, it's the Brooklyn Flea -- as in flea market!

There was so much to see, and it was great because the three of us love looking at old books!

(Fun fact: Kevin was the editor of Tony DiTerlizzi's SPIDER AND THE FLY)

There was no shortage of great food . . .

Peepy liked the donuts best . . .

On the topic of donuts, recently it was National Donut Day!!! Of course, I did my part to support this non-partisan food fest. It was, after all, my patriotic duty.


Oops. We digressed. Back to Brooklyn.

I had the pulled pork sandwich and fresh watermelon juice . . .


Fortified, we continued our exploration . . .

It was all well and good, until Kevin's obsession with large vintage metal object became too much for Phil to handle . . .

I would have to say that I side with Kevin on this. Given what my office looks like, and all. I mean, one can't have too much stuff, right?


Luckily, by the end of the day (ice cream helped) we were all friends again!
