As soon as I heard Zoe Gets Ready
would be in the window of the Scholastic Store on Broadway, I HAD to go. Due to a couple of ridiculous schedules (mine, my husband's), the trip was very quick. But oh, was it worth it! My agent has already written about it on her blog
; please check it out for better coverage than you'll get from me in my current, sleep-deprived state.
|The window! That's my wonderful editor, Cheryl Klein on the left.|
Here are the stickers that Mary mentions in her post. Even the Scholastic grownups were not immune to their charms.
|Zoe stickers: repositionable and good for hours of fun.|
On a personal note, it was the first time I've been back to Manhattan in over 12 years. I lived there for six years in the 90s. In addition to the book stuff, I was able to spend a leisurely morning with my brother, a leisurely afternoon with one of my dearest friends in the world, stroll along the High Line (such a phenomenally brilliant idea), take in the SVA MFA Illustration Thesis Show (My Alma Mater! Fantastic work!), and snap photos of the restaurant where my husband and I went on many of our early dates almost 17 years ago. All in all, a good day.
