Thanks to everyone who showed up for the first Kid Lit Pub Night at Ravenna Third Place Books. We had so much fun, we're doing it again. On October 20, from 7-9 p.m., the Copper Gate in Ballard (6301 24th Ave NW, 98107) will be the place to meet up with fellow writers and illustrators to talk shop to your heart's content. Bring good news, probing questions, and latest reads for a couple hours of getting-to-know other folks in the Western Washington kid lit world. For more info contact your AdCom social event coordinator, Brenda Winter Hansen, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
