Gail Loves Kids Heart Authors Day
I had one excellent morning at Bank Square Books in Mystic, Connecticut, which hosted five author/illustrators for Kids Heart Authors Day. We had a nice, steady stream of people stopping by (and purchasing) and great booksellers who did a wonderful job preparing for us.
I also met some terrific new people. (But what kidlit people aren't terrific, right?):
Deborah Freedman, author and illustrator of Scribble.
Sandra Horning, who wrote The Giant Hug
Laura Jacques who illustrated Whistling Wings (among other things--I saw some of her other books there today)
Nancy Tafuri who has written and illustrated a number of books but was signing The Blue Goose today, as well as I couple of other titles I didn't catch because, well...
...we were all talking and having a good time!
