Come one, come all, to our annual pre-conference Kid Lit Drink Night on Friday, April 11. Even if you're not planning to attend the conference (and why the heck not?*), you won't want to miss rubbing elbows and lifting glasses with faculty and your fellow tribe members at the Marriott Redmond Town Center starting at 7:00 p.m.
This is always our bubbliest KLDN of the year, usually with visiting booksellers and famous (or infamous) local authors and illustrators, as well as most or all of our conference faculty, so plan to be there. Plenty of non-alcoholic beverages will be available at the no-host bars for all you squirrels who aren't into concoctions such as Nut Brown Ale. We're looking forward to it!
* Really? You're okay with missing the likes of author Franny Billingsley and publisher Justin Chanda? Not to mention editor Claudia Gabel, illustrator Renata Liewska, art director agent Susan Hawk? A very few seats are still available; get registration info here.
