About me: "Well, I work at the most succulent plum of children's branches in New York City. The Children's Center at 42nd Street not only exists in the main branch (the one with the big stone lions out front) but we've a colorful assortment of children's authors and illustrators that stop on by. I'm a lucky fish. By the way, my opinions are entirely my own and don't represent NYPL's in the least. Got blame? Gimme gimme gimme!"
1. Press Release Fun: 826NYC Auction


I’d really prefer to keep this a secret, but it’s for a good cause and you guys are sweet.

There’s currently an auction for entirely worthy 826NYC (“826NYC is a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting students ages 6-18 with their creative and expository writing skills, and to helping teachers inspire their students to write”).  What kind of auction, you say?  Oh, I dunno.  Could be an auction of some of the world’s finest working children’s illustrators today going for cheap cheap cheap cheap.  I mean, as I write this there’s an honest-to-god Lane Smith going for $100.  Did you like this year’s Creepy Carrots?  How about an original sketch from the book for $150?  Mo Willems art for $100!  Oh, I can’t say any more.  It’ll just depress me.  If I had my way I’d buy up all this stuff myself.  Some of these pieces are done in three or four days, so best you put in your own two cents now.  Here’s a sampling of what I’m talking about:
