NCTE Orlando Part 1

Arrived in sunny Orlando for the NCTE annual conference, checked into hotel and was greeted by the Mickey Mouse (towels) on my bed:

Can you find Mickey Mouse on the shower curtain?

Then I made a quick sweep of the exhibit area and ran into some familiar faces:

Me and Little Brown editor, Alvina Ling

Me, Peepy, and author Lisa Yee

Me and Peepy

Me and Dial/Penguin editor, Kathy Dawson

That night, I attended a wonderful Macmillan-hosted dinner with teachers and other children's literature folks.

Me and Elaine Magliaro.
(Elaine and I had been on the same 2-hour delayed flight from Boston)

Me and my pal, teacher, blogger Karen Terlecky from Dublin, Ohio

I hope you had better luck on your flight back home. I did...fortunately. Can't wait to read "The Fantastic Secret of Owen Jester."

Hi Barbara!

NCTE was excellent! So many people and so much to do! I hope our paths cross next time. I saw Lisa, and you saw Lisa, so that's one degree of separation!
