Thoroughly Thankfully Talented

These fellow bookworms were as generous with their time as they are with their talent, and we had a terrific time hosting them. Here's a group photo of everyone (basically from left to right): Eric Velasquez, Dan Gutman, Ame Dyckman, Vin Vogel, Leslie Martini, Jessica Olien, Emily Arnold McCully, Julie Fogliano, Beth Ferry, Steve Light, and George O'Connor. Thank you, friends -- and keep up the great work!
