Spent most of the day today in the board meeting for USBBY. However, we did break for meals. That means seeing luminaries eating, too. I even rode down the elevator with Katherine Paterson and her husband. Saw Shaun Tan at dinner as well. I managed to run into a bunch of fellow Texans and we broke bread together. We come thousands of miles to see colleagues who work maybe 50 or 60 miles away. Go figure.
Tomorrow's first session is Shaun Tan and David Wiesner. Worth getting up early, I'd say. I will be tweeting from the conference as much as I can so that you can "see" what's happening at IBBY.
Here's a picture of Scout to entertain you in the meantime.
