2k7ers in Nashua, NH

Congratulations to our panel of experts: Sarah Aronson, Greg R. Fishbone, Carrie Jones, and Jo Knowles, who appeared together at a workshop entitled: “The ABCs of Author Co-Promotions” at the annual New England SCBWI conference in Nashua, New Hampshire. Their high-tech, hour-long, PowerPoint-powered, information-packed presentation was raptly enjoyed by a capacity crowd that filled every seat in the room.

Also present were 2k7 Class Historian A.C.E. Bauer and Class of 2k8 co-leader Marissa Doyle.

This was the first joint presentation of 2k7ers, but certainly not the last. You’ll see another panel in Los Angeles this August and at a variety of book signings, school visits, weddings, and bat-mitzvahs.
