Ah, bleak mid-winter. I love it because there's so little going on. Other years I've complained about the lack of childlit activity in Connecticut in January. And over the last year or two it's seemed to me that we're seeing a decline in childlit activity in independent bookstores all year round. But recently local libraries and even Barnes & Nobles have been doing such a good job of providing children's and YA authors and illustrators with opportunities to meet with the public that if they want to put their collective feet up during these dark, short days, it's fine with me.
