Teen Scouts help the Mill Valley Masketeers by cutting hundreds of t-shirts to make ear ties. Led by local Mill Valley citizen Lee Budish, people from around the community came together like the Scouts, to donate fabric, cut, sew and deliver over 14,000 masks to those in need.
It’s been pretty crazy since our terrific, super crowded conference in October, 2012. I think it took the conference team a month or more to recover. We ended the year with two more fun events in December, one free for members at the lovely, historic Depot Bookstore & Cafe in Mill Valley, and the other event in Walnut Creek featuring 4 debut authors and illustrator.
Now it’s January already. We have a couple of upcoming events, our writers and illustrators retreat at Green Gulch at Muir Beach, and a meeting in Walnut Creek. Check out our home page for more info.
Meanwhile, I am gearing up to attend the New York SCBWI Conference on Feb. 1. I am So looking forward to the speaker lineup and bringing back some good ideas for new programs and speakers!
