Kid Lit Pie Night!

In the Boston area? Tired of missing the fabulous NYC-based Kid Lit Drink Nights hosted by the likes of Besty Bird and Cheryl Klein? Well, now you don't have to feel like a wallflower ever again, because ....

You're cordially invited to our
First-Ever Kid Lit Pie Night!



(a plan concocted during a twitter chat between Anindita Basu Sempere, Melissa Stewart, John L. Bell, and me).

When: Monday, 9/21/09 (in solidarity with the Kid Lit Drink Night, we decided to go for concurrency), 6-8 p.m., stop by any time.

Where: Pie Bakery and Café, Newton Centre, Newton, MA, near the Newton Centre T-stop and plenty of area parking.

Who: Writers, illustrators, editors, agents, booksellers, librarians, readers -- anybody who wants to get great stories into the hands and hearts of young readers.

Why: Because face-to-face is still the best way to connect. And over pie? Come on.

Please RSVP in the comments, by email, or via tweet so we get an idea of how many might show up.

Grrr. Reason #4,602 I want to move up there!

(Also, how is it I'm only now learning about this Pie Bakery? My roommate and I could have done that instead of late-night Dunkin Donuts runs...)

Agh! I have U2 tickets for that night. Mitali, please know that Bono is the only thing that could keep me away.

I hope there's a 2nd pie night down the road!

As long as Hubby takes kids to soccer practice, all systems point to GO. Here's hoping there are no work emergencies!
