I'm really looking forward to the next few weeks - I have a bunch of cool book events (see my new events page!) in Massachusetts and New Hampshire, school is ending, and I'm wrapping up work on TOO MUCH! NOT ENOUGH!, coming out Summer '18 from Tundra Books.
I'm so happy to announce that my poster for the NESCBWI Spring Conference Poster contest won 3rd place (Published Category)! (click image for a larger version)
Many thanks go to all the amazing conference organizers, volunteers, and judges. I have been attending for many years, and I never walk away without profound moments, new friends, and reason to celebrate and come back again for more. I will post a full recap (as always!) later this week.
The poem by Jane Yolen for this year's contest instantly sparked a picture in my head. Big elephant thanks go to the brilliant author above all. I truly enjoyed every moment of making this poster and am proud of how it all came together.
Congratulations to all the other winners - it was a sea of beautiful work this weekend!
