Pre-#LA12SCBWI Interview Roundup!

My favorite #kidlit event of the year is coming up, the SCBWI International Summer Conference in Los Angeles. We are so lucky to have this stupendous summer camp for adults, and every year, the faculty is top notch (except for those years when Jon Scieszka is around, those years I block out and don't know what notch to put them in).
I am not allowed to remember when this was taken,
but that's clearly evil shooting out of Scieszka's head and not the gently setting L.A. sun
But more on Jon's nefariousness later. Today, I want to make sure you are all reading the stellar pre-conference interviews being done by SCBWI Team Blog:

Martha Brockenbrough, author of DEVINE INTERVENTION, has already done two interviews, one with editor Arthur Levine, and one with conference keynoter Gary Schmidt. You'd have to be a real chump to ignore these links (and if you haven't read MONDAY IS ONE DAY or OKAY FOR NOW yet, you'd better!)

Saucy Suzanne Young, whose latest A WANT SO WICKED (the answer is not Twinkies) just released, has a lovely interview with editor Ari Lewin of G.P. Putnam's/Penguin.

And our fearless leeder, Lee Wind, interviews the dynamo Sonya Sones, author of WHAT MY MOTHER DOESN'T KNOW and other impeccable verse novels.

I've got some interviews coming up shortly, too!
