High Noon

Where do you need to be? Chatting with Kristin Daly from HarperCollins!!!

Friday, August 25th from Noon to 1 pm EST, we at TKA are thrilled to be chatting with Kristin Daly. I know you're dying for more so here's a bit about Ms. Daly:

Kristin first became interested in children’s books as a career in high school, when she worked in her local public library shelving—and often covertly reading!—books in the children’s room. In May 1999 she was hired as an Editorial Assistant at Golden Books, where she worked on picture books, series fiction, and the Road to Reading line. In January 2002, she began working at HarperCollins, where she has been for the past four and a half years and counting. Kristin has been privileged to work with authors and illustrators such as Valeri Gorbachev, Charles Santore, Lee Bennett Hopkins, Jack Prelutsky, Suzy Becker, and Barbara McClintock. Currently, she is especially excited to be working with best-selling author Gary Blackwood on his first I Can Read Book, The Just-So Woman, and talented newcomer—and SCBWI member—Sudipta Bardhan on her first Harper picture books, Snoring Beauty and Hampire! Kristin edits a range of children’s titles, from picture books and easy-to-reads through middle-grade, and is currently on the hunt for her first YA novel.

Come Join Us Friday, Aug. 25th and Chat With Kristin Daly!

I am so sorry to have missed this. I'm a fellow member of SCBWI. And I must also say that (modestly) children's book people are so lovely. There's no such concept as "rival". It's a gentle peaceful world where the word friend really does exist even if you don't know them yet.
