The Publishing Scene with Arthur Levine

On Saturday I attended SCBWI's Spring Thaw program with author & editor extraordinaire Arthur Levine.  What a fabulous speaker.  Arthur covered the key ingredients for remaining savvy in the current children's publishing market and also offered his perspective on launching picture books during a time when the format is considered "a tough sell".  It was definitely a day well spent.  Thank you so much to Arthur and to the committee that made this great event happen.  It's always wonderful to get together with my writing friends. 

I was also able to purchase Arthur's new book "Monday is One Day".  A heartwarming story about how hard it is for parents and children to say good-bye when Monday comes and parents head off to work, and children to daycare or school.  Sure to be a new family favorite. 


  1. You're right, Cathy - it was a fantastic day and it was great seeing you there!

  2. So great to see you too Lori! You and Meg did a fantastic job! Still in awe over the "fortune cookie - first line of a children's book" game. Such a terrific idea!!!
