Kidlit Drink Night – Magazine Fun

Mark Tuchman took this side shot of us as we posed for this month’s SLJ cover.  It’s particularly appropriate since Cheryl Klein and I, pictured here, are hosting a Kidlit Drink Night this week in honor of that issue.  Our next get-together will be Thursday, November 12, at the Globe Bar on 23rd St. between Lexington and 3rd Ave., starting about 6 p.m.  Please come if you can.  I’ll be a little late, but there around 7:15.  And if you would like to be on our mailing list, email us at

See you then!

About Elizabeth Bird

Elizabeth Bird is currently the Collection Development Manager of the Evanston Public Library system and a former Materials Specialist for New York Public Library. She has served on Newbery, written for Horn Book, and has done other lovely little things that she'd love to tell you about but that she's sure you'd find more interesting to hear of in person. Her opinions are her own and do not reflect those of EPL, SLJ, or any of the other acronyms you might be able to name. Follow her on Twitter: @fuseeight.


  1. Why Ms. Bird,

    I opened my PW this week and there you are – quoted in the Forward on Page 3. Seems you are everywhere these days.

  2. Yes. I apologize for that. I think I shall cloister myself in a cave for a bit after this month. Though, knowing my lunch, I’ll just end up mentioned in Hermits Monthly or something.
