Snowflake opening at the Danforth

On Sunday those of us that are local (and some not so local) gathered at the Danforth Museum in Framingham, MA to sign books and admire the full collection of snowflakes on display for Robert's Snow. The sight of all 150+ 'flakes on display is AMAZING. You don't have to be a children's book fanatic to be impressed by these tiny perfect works of art!

First we gathered to sign our books and get to know the Dana Farber folks who've done so much for the project this year:

The artists in attendence (right to left Grace, me, Amiko Hirao, Barbara Lehman, Rebecca Doughty, Alissa Imre Geis, David Ezra Stein, a lovely lady I did not get to meet (sorry!), Judy Moffatt and Robin Brickman:



It was a fun day as it always is when children's book authors and illustrators venture out to meet eachother, and it was especially exciting to see the snowflakes and pick out our favorites... if you have a chance to see the exhibit (stays up until Dec 2nd) I definitely recommend it, as is usually the case with art the pieces look very different in person than they do on the web.

Fyi my interview at over at the Longstockings blog went up yesterday, click here to take a look- they did such a nice job of putting it all together!
