Kidlit Drink Night: SCBWI Edition
The time has come, the walrus said, to talk of many things. Of where the heck Victoria Stapleton go her shoes and ships and sealing wax, of castles and of kings. And when the next Kidlit Drink Night will be held (and whether pigs have wings). For now we’ll limit ourselves to just the Kidlit Drink Night question, and lucky us, we’re going to continue the tradition of holding one at the beginning of the Midwinter SCBWI meeting in New York City. Alas, my partner in crime (and the woman who seriously does ALL the legwork and planning for these events) Cheryl Klein will not be in attendance this year. Please inform Kindling Words that they need to stop hosting their events at the same times as the NYC SCBWI event. Or maybe it’s the other way around . . .
Always assuming you folks are interested, here are the details as they stand. And, as per usual, you are ALL welcome to attend!
Where: The Wheeltapper Pub, 141 East 44th Street (near Lexington Avenue). Specifically, the backroom.
When: Friday, January 28th, 9 p.m.-ish
Who: You. And your friends. And your friends’ friends. Really, we’d just love to have you. The more the merrier (just so long as you don’t mind talking children’s literature). We can all grouse together about the ALA Media Awards too, y’know. And if you like you can touch the baby bump for good luck. It’s a well-established fact that blogger baby bumps of Birds are by far the luckiest in the biz. True story.
See you then!
