Kid Lit Conference Family Photo

Colourful characters, great dialogue and the unbelievably generous hospitality of kidlit authors Robin Brande and Esme Raji Codell made this wonderful weekend of laughs and learning well worth the death defying flight that got us there. What a great bunch of intelligent, creative and totally fun people. We can’t wait til next year!

[…] (For the record, I got a big family photo, too, but it came out way too dark. Go see Mark and Andrea for a beautiful copy) . . . […]

Thanks for the picture with the floating notes of who’s who…that’s fabulous. And I really enjoyed your session on podcasting: so much solid information and I appreciated you taking questions from the floor and flowing along in response to those inquiries.

And on a personal note: it was fun having lunch with you and hearing a bit of your family story. Hope your flight back was smoother!

Hi guys! It was great to meet you — I loved how on friday night Mark came into the lobby and instantly started making hug rounds of the room. I could tell he was a shy one!! The photos are great — looking forward to listening to your podcasts. You’ve inspired me to think about doing more of my own. (Maybe!)

See you next year!

Hey All!

Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving such kind words.

It was really great to meet you this weekend. We’ll be following your blogs — and listening to your soon-to-be podcasts — while we await KidLit 2008 in Portland.

Great meeting you guys. And thanks for capturing so much of the conference for us and for sharing your podcasting wisdom. I may be stepping into the dark side sometime soon.
