I have an exciting announcement to make, and it’s all about babies. Unfortunately, Beth Fantaskey will not be able to join us for TBF 2011. But fortunately, it’s for a really good reason. Two days before TBF, Beth will be boarding a plane to China to adopt a new baby! So although we will miss her at TBF 2011, we are all so happy for her and her family and their newest addition. Beth will be attending Teen Book Festival 2012, so we all look forward to hearing about her new baby (who won’t be quite so new anymore!).
Beth isn’t the only member of our TBF community to be gaining a new family member, though! We have a new TBF Planning Committee baby! One of our amazing committee members had a beautiful baby girl only a few weeks ago. I have yet to meet our newest little committee member, but I know that she’s a book-lover-in-training. (I wonder if we can get a TBF t-shirt in a newborn size … or maybe Terry Bear will share his t-shirt with our newest TBF member.)
So readers, all these TBF babies are keeping the storks busy. Congratulations to all the happy parents and their families! I can’t wait to see pictures!
I have also have a contest winner to announce! The winner of a copy of “Heist Society” by Ally Carter is
