Book Title Judges and More Judges and a Jury

Lisa Yee’s 275th Annual Bodacious Book Title Contest continues. (Past contests have had entries like these laugh-so-hard-milk-comes-out-of-your-nosers.)

While you’re busy coming up with brilliant and witty Bodacious Book Title Contest entries, I thought I’d tell you who the Good-Looking Celebrity Judges are this time. But wait! Here’s a hint for the Nancy Drewers and Hardy Boyers in the audience:

Oh, and before I tell you more, guess where I was last week? Here’s a hint:

Yes, you are correct. I was at jury duty. (Those are shots of downtown Los Angeles where we were.) We had a great JUDGE and after two days, I was dismissed and so was Peepy. But not before we saw Phil Spector and his giant bodyguard roaming the hallways as his murder trial jury was being selected . . .
(When I saw him, Phil had changed his hair style from the above to longish wavy brown hair.)

Oh, but I digress. Back to the reveal of our Good-Looking Celebrity Book Title Contest JUDGES. But wait some more. Guess where I was over the weekend? Here’s a hint:

Yes! You are sooooo smart!!! I was in San Francisco. While there I picked my finalists for Adam Rex’s Haiku Contest, me being an Official Haiku JUDGE and all.

Then I got to visit the wonderful Main Branch of the San Francisco Public Library and have COFFEE! with a former Newbery JUDGE and former Bodacious Book Title Contest JUDGE.

Lookit! Here’s Carla Kozak (as mentioned above) giving Peepy a tour of the eye-popping Robert Sabuda exhibit.
