And another great opportunity

They just keep coming this week!  Sally Isaacs was my wonderful room-mate at NJ-SCBWI this past summer, and she’s a fantastic person from whom to learn about children’s nonfiction.  Sally is co-chairing this event with Lionel Bender of Bender, Richardson, White – London.
