Writers and illustrators are out and about this weekend, being interviewed, profiled, and writing essays themselves.
First and foremost, our own Don Tate writes about talking writing and illustration with juvenile offenders for the Austin American-Statesman. It's an inspirational piece. Great work, Don!
Carolyn Peirce interviews Jennifer L. Holm for the Baltimore Sun.
Mary Schulte talks to three writers for the Kansas City Star: Esmé Raji Codell, Mordicai Gerstein and Pam Muñoz Ryan.
Jenny Deam talks to Anita Silvey (100 Best Books for Children and 500 Great Books for Teens) for the Denver Post.
Someone (where's the gosh-darned byline?) talks to Jen Bryant for the Chester Daily Local Online (PA).
Erica Anderson covers a Walter Wick (I Spy) and Rodman Philbrook event in Walla Walla, Washington for the Walla Walla Union-Bulletin.
Joanna Carey profiles Alexis Deacon for the Guardian.
The question is: who hides during the winter? Journalists or children's writers and illustrators?
