More Good Stuff

Kidlitcon is my favorite of all conferences. It's a gathering of childrens and YA book bloggers, just us all sitting around and talking kids books. And this year it will be held in New York City, September 28-29, 2012. Do come! I haven't seen registration info yet, but the call for submisisons for panels is up, here at Fuse #8 (Betsy is organizing the conference this year).

Here are all the chapter illustrations from Harry Potter--it's interesting to see things getting darker! (via reddit)
