SCBWI LA Conference Day Two

• Saturday, July 31, 2010

Another day at the conference meant another day of great speakers and experiences.  Though I was getting a bit tired towards the afternoon, the moment the speaker Gail Carson Levine said Ella Enchanted, I perked up!  I didn't remember her name, but I know Ella Enchanted!  It was my cousin Michelle's favorite book in high school that she had to have me read it.

The day was a little emotionally draining but it was to end in the Heart and Soul Ball. Let's just say that writers and illustrators know how to let the wild rumpus start: food, drinks, costumes, dancing.  Yup, we have a lot of heart and soul!
Great Costumes.
My OC illustrators group with Arthur Levine who is the American publisher of the Harry Potter series.
This member gave a great impromptu rendition of "Push It" by Salt-N-Peppa. She really got the party started!
Gail Carson Levine apparently can groove as well as she writes.

...and it was my birthday but I didn't tell anybody.
