It was a great honor and privilege to be part of the TURN THE PAGE event in Newtown, CT.
I spent my first day there visiting classrooms and speaking to the students. We had a great time! There were so many wonderful friends new and old participating. It was a regular who's who of children's book literature. On the second day, we all signed books, talked and laughed with folks from Newtown.
Here are just a few of the ultra-talented authors and illustrators who participated: (back row) Barbara McClintock, Brian Selznick, Tony DiTerlizzi (front row), Christopher Paolini, Jeff Kinney, me, Robin Preiss Glasser, Nick Bruel and Judy Schachner.
