Now I'll Creep Over Here and Steal Someone Else's News

In other blog-related news, Brooke of The Brookeshelf reports on her recent attendance at the ALSC conference held in Pittsburgh this week-end. For fun, try to guess who the following children's authors are:

I'm not naming names, but one author wouldn't carry her own luggage, refused to walk across a parking lot to the hosting librarian's car, and then asked prying questions about the host's personal life. Another author refuses to stay in hotels and requests expensive bed-and-breakfasts. Ai-yi-yi.

I think I know who the first one is. And no, I'm not telling.

She also has a link to American Girls Dolls Write Letters To President Bush. I was, however, a little distraught that the only dolls writing were Felicity, Samantha, Kit, Kaya, and Molly. What's Addy, chopped liver? Besides, I think she could have had some choice things to say about the New Orleans debacle.

Hey, library lady, it's Addy. (I too read that realty agency as "Survivor" Realty)

Good call! I shall change forthwith.

Well, I definitely know some of the children's authors who don't fit the snooty descriptions. Those authors are in the majority (hurrah hurrah).

I would say, by and large, the majority of children's authors do NOT fulfill that description. Once in a while, however, a person gets unlucky.
