There was a jam-packed schedule at the Fair on Tuesday.
I'm told by those who attended (I was working at the booth) that the NY Times panel discussion was outstanding and it was just one of several presentations and panels on the schedule for the day.
At the SCBWI booth, we had a full schedule as well: from personal showcases, to free walk-up portfolio reviews, to our popular dueling illustrators.
The highlight of the day was our reception celebrating the BIG Illustration gallery honorees. Two of them were at the fair so it was particularly nice to be able to recognize them personally. SCBWI co-founder Lin Oliver spoke briefly about SCBWI and its mission of supporting authors and illustrators at every stage of their careers.
We're looking forward to another great day at the Fair on Wednesday!
