Voila! Kevin magically appears at SCBWI Bainbridge kidlit night!
SCBWI-ers traveled from far and wide on a very dark and rainy Friday
night recently to join up on at Casa Rojas Cantina on Bainbridge Island
for Kid Lit Drink Night. Kevan Attebury came all the way over from the
East Side (but departed before our photo shoot). Christina Wilsdon
joined us from Seattle. Rowena Russell traveled from Bremerton. And
Andrea Lawson came down in the dark from Port Townsend. Margaret
Nevinski, Dawn Simon and Jennifer Mann made the relatively short journey
from other dark and rainy neighborhoods on the island. Although we
competed for the Noisiest Group Award with a large and lively crowd
imbibing at the Cantina before seeing Breaking Dawn at the theater next
door, we did manage to silence the room when we loudly brainstormed
brilliant and unexpected markets for Kevan’s Monster-a-day project. We
also solved some vexing photoshop problems, discussed the current state
of publishing and generally toasted the wonder and joy that is
children’s books. It was a great night to venture out into the rain!
Next time maybe we’ll aim for a sunny summer evening, and a spot on the
deck of the Harbour Pub. This blurb courtesy of Jennifer Mann, illustrator, writer.
