Buyers, Books and Buzz

This past Saturday I attended SCBWI-IL's "Buyers, Books and Buzz" workshop at the beautiful Mayslake Peabody Estate in Oak Brook.  The speakers were Jan Dundon, Children's Book Buyer and Seller for Anderson's Bookshop and Mary Harris Russell, Reviewer of Children's Books for the Chicago Tribune.  This dynamic duo spoke about which books they love, hooked them and why.  It was a wonderful morning discussing children's books.  But I always leave with a huge list of new books that I need to read!


  1. Hi Cathy,
    I didn't realize you had a blog. Good for you!
    Sorry I missed Saturday's program. Glad you enjoyed it!

  2. Thanks Marti! I'm just getting started but it really is a lot of fun. I love your blog! You guys are doing a wonderful job!!!

  3. My to read list is terribly long!
    Isn't that estate beautiful? I went to a workshop there of Carmela's a few summers ago.

  4. It is gorgeous there. What a treat. Didn't you love Carmela's class! I took one of hers too. Thanks Kelly.
