I’ve got three quick 7-Imp announcements, and I’m going to use rock-and-roll hands, instead of bullet points, because rock-and-roll hands are infinitely more exciting.
I’ve got a guest post today over at Calling Caldecott about Mordicai Gerstein’s The Night World.
I already reviewed this beautiful book back in June for BookPage, but writing about it in even more detail for Calling Caldecott made me love it all the more. (Here’s art from the book.)
This Sunday, I’ll moderate the third annual picture book panel at Politics & Prose in D.C. This panel will be all about picture books for older readers with Jason Chin, Jacqueline Woodson, Christopher Myers, John Parra, and Chris Soentpiet.
Here are the details. (Nancy Paulsen is listed at that link, but she’ll be unable to attend.)
Spam and so-called spam bots have been making things difficult lately here at 7-Imp. But the webmaster (my personal tech support, my husband) has installed the WordPress plug-in reCAPTCHA, which we are testing in order to address this spam aggression. Should you have trouble posting a comment, which will now require you to type in a word to prove you’re not spam (sorry), please contact me.
There’s a lot more I need to do here at 7-Imp (the archive pages are woefully out-of-date), but at least the spam problem is solved. Maybe. Fingers crossed.
Until tomorrow …
