Morning Notes: Expeditious Edition
CHILDREN’S LITERATURE VANITY FAIR
Marc Tyler Nobleman is my kind of guy – always looking to have a good time on his blog. You remember last year when he had authors read their bad reviews, right? He’s back with an idea he adapted from Vanity Fair – The Proust Questionnaire. Over the next few days, a bunch of familiar faces will be answering the same 10 questions. I’ll be reading. Click here to check out the first batch.
KIDLITCON IS COMING
