This weekend, the American Library Association holds its semi-annual meeting in Chicago and I’ll be attending a party for brave librarian Steven Woolfolk of the Kansas City Library, who has won this year’s Lemony Snicket Prize for Noble Librarians Faced with Adversity (LSPNLFA). Here’s more about the prize and why Mr. Woolfolk won it. I’m awfully curious about the “odd, symbolic object” he’ll be getting from Daniel Handler’s collection (These pictures are some of the odd things I am imagining). I’ll also be meeting, in person (!), Lisa Brown, the illustrator for a forthcoming picture book written by me, Lemony Snicket, AND also meeting my editor for both The Pickwicks’ Picnic and the book with Lisa B.
If you know any brave little monsters, won’t you please bring them to the Book Stall in Winnetka, Illinois, USA, this Thursday afternoon at 4:00 for a Halloween party? They can make a photo of themselves as Melly from NOT VERY SCARY! http://bookstallblog.blogspot.com/2014/10/annual-childrens-halloween-party.html
Greetings! I had the pleasure of being interviewed recently about Not Very Scary for my alma mater’s blog. That sounds boring, but it’s not, really! See the interview.
