KIDLIT CON 2012 INSPIRATION
I was lucky enough to go to the 6th annual Kidlit Conference this past weekend in NYC. It was one of those experiences where I didn't know a single person there, but instantly felt like I was with "my people." Authors, illustrators, librarians, bloggers, editors, teachers - all connected to children's and/or teen literature in some way. The whole weekend was perfectly inspiring, full of enthusiastic and intelligent bibliophiles and located in the beautiful and historic New York Public Library Schwarzman Building on 5th Ave and 42nd St. I connected with some fascinating people and hope we'll continue to connect (including at next year's conference). Hooray for Kidlit!
