Breakfast with Jacqueline

There's no better way to start the day than by breakfasting at the Skirball Center with dozens of writers, librarians, teachers, and fans of literature for young people, and that's what I plan to do on Saturday, November 6th. After breakfast, Jacqueline Woodson (Jacqueline Woodson!!!) will give a talk, and if that's not enough excitement, Marla Frazee, Kathleen Krull, Mary E. Pearson, Hope Anita Smith, and Andrew Smith will be receiving awards.

AND Maureen Wade, Librarian Extraordinaire, will be honored with the Dorothy McKenzie Award for Distinguished Service to the Field of Children's Literature.

AND there will be oodles of books to buy and get signed ('cause the holidays are right around the corner).

AND then attendees get to visit the Skirball Cultural Center exhibits for free (check out the Maira Kalman exhibit, among other nifty things).

If you're in Southern California, this is an event not to be missed. So get yourself over to the Children's Literature Council website and Sign up today!

  3. I'll post a report of the proceedings afterward, I promise!
