That evening was dinner with my editors Arthur Levine and Cheryl Klein. On a past blog someone had mentioned they were tired of this photo . . .
So I took this candid shot of the two of them . . .
Sadly, the moment was only that. A moment. And soon they were back to their old selves . . .
The next day Peeps met with another editor to pitch her book idea. (She doesn't want to write the outline Arthur had asked for). The corner of the next editor's office looked like this and it scared her . . .
Still, brave Peep that she is, she went ahead with her meeting with David Levithan, who not only heads up Scholastic Press and PUSH but also wrote the Nick part of NICK AND NORAH'S ULTIMATE PLAYLIST. Here's Peep describing the movie version of her yet-to-be-written-book . . .
David was intrigued with her world views and fashion sense and suggested lunch . . .
While at Scholastic, Peepy also met with Elizabeth Parisi, the art director of my book covers. (I thought it was premature for Peeps to meet with Elizabeth since Peepy hasn't written anything yet, but she insisted) . . .
Then it was time to visit the grand and glorious New York Public Library. . . .
Tragically, this was the last known photo of Peepy before she went missing. Yes. I lost her at the New York Public Library.
