First Annual Kidlitosphere Conference

Great things about the First Annual Kidlitosphere Conference:

  • Gracious and convivial company
  • Interesting and extremely helpful presentations.
  • Entertaining and funny stories.
  • Gotta Book's hilarious t-shirts.
  • A magical brunch at Esme Raji Codell's Book Room, a children's book wonderland if there ever was one. If the setting were not amazing enough, Esme prepared a delicious spread of food that included a blintz cassserole that made me very very happy.
  • Finding out we have more than just our affection for children's and YA literature in common -- We discovered we share similar interests in movies, TV shows, coffee and shoes.
  • A chance to visit with gifted authors and illustrators
  • Such happiness and joy to find out all the blogs I read, REALLY are written and hosted by such nice, smart and funny people.

I think I am the last one to post. As usual, Indefatigable Kelly at Big A little a has an excellent round-up of the posts about the conference.

Thank you, Robin Brande for making all this possible!

The conference was a lot of fun, and I'm so happy we both had time at the airport to talk some more!

It was great to finally meet you, Camille! And I totally second this remark: "Such happiness and joy to find out all the blogs I read, REALLY are written and hosted by such nice, smart and funny people."

Last is not least! I'm glad someone mentioned Greg's t-shirts -- they were hysterical!

Great to get to meet you, Camille! If the weekend only coulda been 96 hours, you know? It sure wasn't long enough to get to sit and talk to everyone nearly enough...

So glad to meet you this weekend! It really was a blast. I'm claiming to be a part of that group of "nice, smart and funny people" and I'm tossing the compliment right back at you.

Hi Camille,
I had SO much fun talking with you about Harry Potter and Jim Dale. I'll see Firefly, I promise!

I'm finally getting around to blog reading this week. I can't tell you much I enjoyed meeting you and talking kids, school and books. I do hope we get to meet again. I am going to try mightily to come to TX for the TLA conference.
