Kidlitcon was wonderful! How could it not be, with this great collection of authors?
Front Row: Eucabeth Odhiambo, David A. Kelly, Phil Bildner. Second Row: Sue Macy, Ms. Yingling, Rich Wallace, Sandra Neil Wallace.

 There were lots of authors at Kidlitcon, but I'm never good about getting pictures. Did have a nice chat with Laurie McKay, Jordan Sonnenblick, and Michael Spradlin (left to right).

But now to get back to work! I need to put out some "Seriously Funny" books, push some historical fiction and, as ALWAYS, work on dismantling the patriarchy, one 6th grade boy checking out Princess in Black at a Time.

Oh, and preparing for Multicultural Children's Book Day (and MONTH!) in January! Mia is so good at social media and making contacts in order to spread important news. Wow!
