Wonderful, Exciting June (Kristin Levine)

The past month has been an exciting one for me.  I just got back from an amazing trip to New York City where I got an award from the New-York Historical Society (presented by New York City School Chancellor Carmen Farina.)

I also got to speak to a bunch of middle-school students...

...and hang out with two of my very favorite people, my editor Stacey Barney (left) and my agent Kathy Green (right). 

Even though writing is something we do alone, there are all these people working behind the scenes, on promotions, publicity, cover design etc.  It was so exciting to meet all of them when I got a special visit to the G.P. Putnam's Sons offices!

And the fun continues...

I'm going to be at ALA this year, speaking at a dinner with the amazing Joan Bauer and Jacqueline Woodson.  I'm so honored to be at an event with them and thrilled to meet them both in person.

Finally, I'll also be signing galleys of my new book, THE PAPER COWBOY, Saturday, June 28 at 9:00 AM.  So if anyone else is going to be at ALA please do come say hi!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful summer.  Happy writing!!

  3. Yay! Can't wait to meet you in person :)

  4. Have a great time at ALA. If you see my Editor/Publisher Marissa Moss with Creston Books, give her a hug for me! Congratulations on the Kudos and new book. I added it to my growing list.
