The talented Roxyanne Young took these photos of my talk on Middle-Grade and Chapter Books at SCBWI-San Diego last weekend and kindly gave me permission to use them. My school visit/speaker page needs a massive updating and I’m so grateful to have some recent images to include.

Apparently I talk with my hands a lot? What’s funniest to me is that this Boston Bay slide was onscreen for barely a minute. That’s an awful lot of glasses-waving going on there.

The rest of my slides were all about other people’s books—my favorite things to talk about, as you know. Here’s a taste:

  1. Delightful to see you in this way, Lissa…

  2. Apparently, I make weird faces, so there are lots of pictures of that – arms flailing, and then making weird faces. Good times! You, of course, look adorable. And I like that dress.

    • (…lots of pictures from KIDLITCON. I don’t make a habit of photographing the flailing/faces at home. Fortunately.)
