Leaves around town are turning golden just in time for this Thursday's Professional Series Meeting with Golden Books editorial director Diane Muldrow! Authors and illustrators alike won't want to miss her fantastic presentation. She'll be signing copies of the books she's written, too.
A few links about Diane, here's her talking about Mary Blair, and check out the raves in the comments section for this post about Diane's workshop (which SCBWI WWA is having her do on Thursday afternoon! Totally sold out with a gigantor wait list!!!)
Likewise be sure to come a little early to check out all the great local illustrator talent in the Keep-It-Simple Art Show.
