Writers Gather

Some of the writers and illustrators
and other noted book people
at the recent Rhode Island Festival
of Children's Books & Authors:

Kate Messner with Professor Susannah Richards

Chris Van Allsburg with Jarrett Krosoczka

Gregory Mone with Avi

Editor Susan Rich with Dan Santat

and the illusive Lemony Snickett


Much love for enthusiastic readers
and much love for fellow writers 
and illustrators
and book lovers.

We did laugh an awful LOT.



  1. Bonjour,

    Un très bon moment certainement et à mettre dans la boîte à bons souvenirs...
    Gros bisous

  2. What do writers talk about when they gather? Is there any particular topic that dominates?

    1. It's all over the board -- from publishing to book travel and new books and old books and families and . . . etc.

  3. what an incredible group of people. and, meeting in rhode island of all places! that's where i spent my childhood. i grew up on a little island called jamestown. what part of my beloved ocean state did you visit?

  4. Yay Hooray! I'm thinking you must come away from such a gathering very energized. (and/or exhausted!)

  5. Did you just catch a fleeting glimpse of Snickett? Hard man to 'catch'.
