Yesterday, I attended Prairie Writer's Day, our annual SCBWI-Illinois conference, and it was fantastic! There was a great line up of editors and agents and I learned a thing or two or twenty. The best part, as always, was hanging out with my fellow writers!
We met at Harper College and the main room we used was awesome!
There was a display of 2010 books by Illinois Writers and/or illustrators. If you squint, you can see 1 Zany Zoo towards the top of the rack on the right :-)
Every year, the committee chooses from among the authors whose debut came out that year and gives the lucky person Book Tour Alex. Guess who the lucky person was?
Here's a close-up of Alex.
