Kidlit Drink Night: Kicking Back Amherst Style. Awwwww, Yeah.
All right, Amherst. Today I packed all my things, jumped in a rental car, and I’m driving to your doorstop (thanks for the directions, Jane!). And sure, I like to see magnificent museums dedicated to children’s illustration, but what did I really come to do? Party. Party hearty. So after you see me speak about illustration here are the details for tonight’s Kidlit Drink Night.
What: Kidlit Drink Night visits Amherst. It’s a time to talk to other people from various professions about children’s literature and its myriad forms.
Where: Bistro 63 at The Monkey Bar at 63 North Pleasant Street as recommended by the sadly absent Jarrett Krosoczka (I’m not making this up. That’s the real name of the place. The Monkey Bar. I am psyched.) We have a back room reserved. By this I mean that the super spectacular Megan Lambert of The Carle reserved it. I suspect it will be under Kidlit Drink Night, Betsy Bird, or Megan Lambert. Or maybe the Eric Carle Museum. Not sure. In any case, look for people wearing glasses. Honestly, that’s how people usually locate my group at bars.
When: Today at 7:30 p.m.
Why: Because I love you, and you never call.
