The absolute BEST part of working in the children’s book business is getting to meet so many of the creators we admire. This past weekend we had the immense pleasure of meeting, dining with and listening to Vera B. Williams. She was just so GREAT in every way: smart, funny, earnest, full of creative spirit. We wanted to follow her home like stray puppies, sit on her floor and just ADORE her for days on end.
We saw her at The Power of Picture Books, a workshop for teachers and writers that’s put on jointly by the Highlights Foundation and the Eric Carle Picture Book Museum. There’s another one coming up in October – Check it out here!
