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!
