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!
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!
