Newbery/Caldecott Banquet ’08: Take a Turn on the Red Carpet/Bathmat
While at the Newbery/Caldecott Banquet I helped authors Jim Averbeck and Maria van Lieshout conduct red carpet interviews with many of the attendees. The results are now viewable at the site On the Red Carpet at ALA. There you can see interviews with everyone from John Green and Jon Scieszka to Roger Sutton, Linda Sue Park, and more. MORE! There’s even a blogger interview with Susan from Wizards Wireless and Jen Robinson of Jen Robinson’s Book Page.
And, of course, there was the obligatory Project Runway spoof:
Roger Sutton sorta scooped me on this, which is COMPLETELY unfair. I was sitting on this link for a week at least! Just waiting until the official go ahead to post. Ah well. I think Mr. Sutton may win 50 points for his use of the term "tramp stamp" anyway.
