Going Places And Seeing People

Today I finally made it to the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art, in spite of the best efforts of my GPS to keep me from getting there. The New England Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators sponsored an event there called Overcoming Challenges. The morning session covered career challenges, and the afternoon session covered what I would call craft or process challenges.

Panelists: Elise Broach, Lita Judge, Grace Lin, and Sara Pennypacker (She has a website, but I couldn't make it open.)

I had lunch with Karen Pandell. She'll be getting a website sometime in the future.

I heard some thought-provoking stuff. Provoking thought is good.

I just got a free year's membership to the EC Museum! ...which I, of course, cannot use, being in GLASGOW, but it was so kind of them to send it to me, that I'm going to make a sincere effort to GET to the place when I'm in the states this summer.

How wonderful with Eric Carle - I just love his caterpillar book. Timeless classic!
