Just wanted to tell all in the Greater Philadelphia Area (yay, Phillies!) that next Friday night (11/7) is the 17th Annual Local Author and Illustrator Night at the wonderful Children's Book World in Haverford. This event is the book world equivalent of stuffing clowns into a tiny car but it sure is fun. Check out the list of attendees:
Marc Aronson, Gene Barretta, Alix Berenzy, Jennifer Bryant, Mimi Chapra, Michael Dooling, Ponder Goembel, Vivian Grey, Berit Haar, Lee Harper, Jeffry Johnston, Beth Kephart, Joe Kukla, Donna Jo Napoli, Jeannine Norris, Lisa Papp, Robert Papp, Judy Lalli, E. B. Lewis, Bob Mcleod, Kathye Petrie, Wendy Pfeffer, Matt Phelan, Deborah Kogan Ray, Adam Rex, Mark Rogalski, Roger Roth, Charles Santore, Jerry Spinelli, Nancy Viau, and David Wiesner
The list is subject to change, but any way you look at it, it might be the the biggest one-stop book signing soiree this side of the ALA convention. Plus, there will be snacks. Hope to see you there!
