Blogging for a Cure, Day Two

h1 October 16th, 2007 by jules

Here is the Robert’s Snow illustrator-and-snowflake feature schedule for Tuesday, October 16 (pictured here is Anna Alter’s ’04 snowflake, “A Cat in the Snow”). In this below schedule, the illustrator’s name links to his/her website, but click on the blog to be taken to that blogger’s snowflake/illustrator feature:

* Selina Alko, featured by Cheryl Klein at Brooklyn Arden

* Scott Bakal, featured by Elaine Magliaro at Wild Rose Reader

* Alexandra Boiger, featured by Kris Bordessa at Paradise Found

* Paige Keiser, featured by Paula Willey at Your Neighborhood Librarian

* Janet Stevens, featured by Tricia Stohr-Hunt at The Miss Rumphius Effect . . .

Did everyone see yesterday’s features? They were a fabulous start to this whole effort. Maybe each day I can pick out one moment to highlight (if I had more hours in the day, I’d do more): One excellent moment from yesterday, other than seeing Grace Lin’s smiling face and all the great write-ups, was Kevin Hawkes telling Cynthia Lord (here) that illustrators “bring the greatest art to children’s books” and that “children truly deserve that.”

Please note that I have started a page here at 7-Imp that includes a comprehensive listing of all the snowflake/illustrator features. You can see it here. At the end of each day, I’ll add the daily schedule and will leave it here for all posterity at 7-Imp, as a record of all the bloggers’ hard work and talents — and as a handy resource on illustrators for Picture Book Nerds like me to enjoy.

One more final note: I can’t possibly count all the bloggers who have been talking up this Blogging for a Cure effort, and I thank you all (according to the ever-informative Tracy Grand at JacketFlap, 169 posts about Robert’s Snow were posted mid-day yesterday!). But one post worth noting, as it involves the creation of a snowflake by, well, a stuffed elephant, is here at Ellsworth’s Journal, via author Candice Ransom.

That’s it for now. Enjoy the posts. And go buy a snowflake already . . .

  1. Ellsworth never dreamed her snowflake would be featured on Seven Imp, but she’s happy to do her part for Robert’s Snow. Winchester has been checking the snowflakes out–he wants one with a cat on it, like Anna Alter’s. I told him he can’t pay for a snowflake in kibble.
