Kidlit Drink Night: November is for Lovers . . . of Children’s Books
All right, fellow citizens. We’ve a new President ah-coming to the White House. The weather is turning cold. The stars are in alignment. Sounds like ideal conditions for a new Kidlit Drink Night.
Due to a lovely turn of events in which my email was briefly hacked this weekend (some lucky readers were blessed enough to find a message from "me" offering a plethora of choice electronic goods) Cheryl Klein and I have been having some difficulty determining the location. We’ve finally settled on Faces and Names though so this much we know:
What: Kidlit Drink Night – A time when anyone who wants to talk about children’s books is invited to imbibe and talk at length on such topics as the New York Times movie review of The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, for example. Teacher, librarians, editors, marketing types, booksellers, authors, illustrators, parents, and enthusiasts of every stripe are welcome.
When: Monday, November 17th!
When???: Oh! Uh . . . . 6:30.
Where: Faces and Names. You know. The nice bar with the grotesque celebrity caricatures.
Why: Because we like you! M-O-U-S-E.
