Mass. Creativity: Share our 6-days with the Stars

Monday, November 17, 2008.

We’re back from six unbelievable days of revelry and reverence in Massachusetts and Connecticut with some of Children’s Literature’s greatest authors and illustrators. Over the next many weeks, we’ll be publishing audio and video coverage of some of our fun and festivities.

What you will see and hear on JustOneMoreBook!! in the coming weeks:

Michele, Kim & Tricia, thanks for popping in and for sharing your enthusiasm. It was beyond belief (like spring training fantasy camp for picture book fans!). We cannot wait to publish our audio and video and we really hope you enjoy it when we do.
