Bookstore Tour: Episode Two

Day two of my great Massachusetts bookstore tour, a brilliant publicity idea innovated by Donna Spurlock of Charlesbridge. I get to chat and break bread with Donna and editor Judy O'Malley, children's lit expert, for three days -- yesterday, today, and Monday. I'll report in on this adventure next week, and in the meantime, check out the winners of the 2006 Boston Globe/Horn Book Awards for Excellence in Children's Literature, and this Publishers Weekly interview with Patricia McCormick about her research process for Sold, a novel on sex trafficking in Nepal. (Thanks, John Bell, for the link).
