Kidlit Drink Night: SCBWI Night

SCBWI is coming to NYC and if you’re in the area then we’d love you to be a part of the fourth annual Kidlit Drink Night, SCBWI Winter Conference Edition.  Though we don’t usually do two drink nights in one month (and, unfortunately, my co-organizer Cheryl Klein will be unable to attend this one) we’d love to see you at the following:

When: Friday, January 29th – 8:00 p.m. (though I may not be able to be there until 9:00)

Where: The Wheeltapper Pub at on 44th Street between Lex and 3rd.

Who: Anyone who wishes to attend.

And in a related post, here are the results of the last Kidlit Drink Night and the votes we took (tabulated by Cheryl).  We will let the winners know of their fabulous prizes very soon. As you can see, many of these were doggone close.

NEWBERY MEDAL: WHEN YOU REACH ME (8 medal votes, 2 honors)
HONORS: EVOLUTION OF CALPURNIA TATE (1 medal vote, 6 honors)

CALDECOTT MEDAL: THE LION AND THE MOUSE (6 medal votes, 3 honors)
HONORS: THE CURIOUS GARDEN (2 medal votes, 2 honors)
DUCK? RABBIT! (3 honors)
MOONSHOT (3 honors)

  1. Hi Betsy,
    I’m so glad you’re putting together a kidlit drink night during the SCBWI conference!

  2. Hello Betsy,
    Cyndy Cotten said I should look your Kidlit drink night up on your blog. My party of 4 SCBWI attendees will be in town but have tix to broadway show. Will you and your group be there after showtime??? We would love to come.

  3. Hi Julia,

    I have to assume so. I might have to take off before 12 (I work the next day) but other folks have, in the past, stayed long after me.

    Aah, I always turn greenish (with envy I mean) reading about these parties while sitting in Cleveland. But wow I’m coming to SCBWI! Hope to meet you all.
