Here's my five year plan:
- Become rich via librarianship (we're still working out the kinks on this one).
- Visit every cool party involving children's literature around the country/world (depending on the level of "rich" we've achieved). This includes, but is not limited too, the TLA Conferences, the IRA Conference, and anything that occurs on the Pacific Northwest.
Why the Pacific Northwest in particular? Because they put on one heckuva show. Just recently the Western Washington chapter of SCBWI had a big author-laden shindig under the moniker Spring Inside Story
. And because I have not yet completed Step One of my five-year plan I could not go. I mean just look at that line-up. I already know how much I loved Reality Leak
, Violet Bing and the Grand House
, The Snow Baby
, and the darling Faeries of Dreamdark
. Imagine how much I might have also
loved the other books/authors who were present. Well played, Seattle. Well played indeed.
