John Lennon's Birthday

My sister and I went to Strawberry Field in Central Park last night to see if anything was happening in honor of John Lennon's birthday. We found a group of musicians playing Lennon songs, surrounded by people of all ages singing along. It was great! Here's a clip of one of the songs my sister took on her iPhone.

S Is For Story by Esther Hershenhorn & Zachary Pullen

I saw the amazing Esther Hershenhorn at our monthly SCBWI meeting in Vernon Hills. She spoke about her journey from first idea to publication of her new book S Is For Story: A Writer's Alphabet published by Sleeping Bear Press. There are so many levels to this wonderful book and the illustrations by Zachary Pullen are phenomenal!
