Getting to NY, American Girl(s) & See Peepy Party

My flight from Los Angeles to New York was cancelled. (And so were over 1,000 other flights to the east coast.) So I raced to another airport a million miles away and wormed my way onto stand-by.

This is where Peepy and I ended up . . .

Yes! We're in Tahiti--or New York. I get confused.

We had a marvelous time with uber librarian/blogger Betsy Bird a.k.a. Fuse #8 and editor/adverturess Cheryl Klein at The Zipper Factory Tavern . . .

(Betsy, in middle, not only served on the Newbery Committee, she also judged this distinguished contest. And not only is Cheryl a Senior Editor at Arthur A. Levine Books, but she served as continuity editor for HARRY POTTER.

Things got a little out of hand. But then, you know what those kid lit-types are like . . .

The next day I walked from my fancy hotel . . .

The book signing was great and I got to meet lots of new people! Peeps had a wonderful time, too. She really liked the BBQ set, and now wants one of her own . . .

Peepy also went to a couple parties . . .
