Besides being thankful that we will have picture books published next year, these are other surprising and interesting things some of our authors are grateful for...
Laura Renauld: I am thankful for snowball snow, crocus blossoms, garden-ripe tomatoes, and fall feasts with family and friends.
Stephanie Lucianovic: I am thankful for California firefighters, The Good Place on NBC, midterm elections, and rainy days.
Cassandra Federman: I’m thankful for uncontrollable gigglefests and for the kindness of strangers.
Teresa Robeson: I am thankful for 1) the evolution of angiosperms so I can have my favorite, and some not-so-favorite, fruits, 2) the existence of the Higgs Boson without which we would not be here talking about what we are thankful for, and 3) hairspray.
Hannah Stark: I am thankful for the big things like libraries and love, the small things like teeth and toilet paper, and all of the moments I take like this to realize the list is long.
We hope this gets you thinking about the wonderful little things that you are grateful to have in your life. Be sure to come back on December 5th when we will have our first #Notable19s member interview.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
If you're like us, you're probably well aware that the holidays are upon us (even before Halloween candy went on sale...LOL!). This year, Notable19 members are excitedly looking forward to the new year when our debut books will be birthed.
Some of us already have our books available for pre-order! You can see these fabulous covers, along with preordering links, on the BOOKS page. Others, you will have to wait until for a while longer for the reveal. Believe us, we are as impatient about it as you are!
We will be starting our Get To Know the Author/Illustrator posts very soon. In the meantime, be sure to check out all of our authors' social media links and websites to see what they are up to on a daily basis. Cassandra, James, and Lisa, for example, post their wonderful illustrations on their Instagram pages, while Richard and Teresa tend to share science tweets on Twitter. Make sure you follow them all!
We are a group of writers and illustrators who have debut books (actual debuts , debuts as author-illustrators, or debuts with medium/large publishers) forthcoming in 2019. Thank you for joining us on our exciting journey!
