- Thanks, Vonna, for the terrific newsletter. It's great way to begin the new
[Non-text portions of this message have been removed]
I just saw this. I am so sorry to all who lost houses, cars, BOOKS, and/ or memories in Harvey. We are among those people, but we are fine. It was our third flood in two and half years, so we’re pros. (Not that I want to be a pro in this!) This time is was 100% destroyed with no hope of going back. We are (were) a one story house in Meyerland, so there was no escape. Again, we are fine, but my heart goes out to everyone affected.
Besides sending virtual hugs to everyone, I am writing because my desk top computer drowned, and I lost all my emails that go to my Ellen@... address. That is where I get a lot of my SCBWI info (happily, not the list serve). I signed up to sell books at the conference, but I have no idea the protocol. I would be grateful if someone could clue me in or point me in the right direction to find out. I know that Vonna is not doing the bookstore due to her flood. Please take care, Vonna.
Thanks so much!
How are you doing Bruce? I know that your house flooded, but how extensive is the damage?
After a month’s hiatus, (Thank you for nuttin', Harvey!) it is time for another newsletter. Please send in all your good news and announcements by end of day Saturday.
Also, as you know, SCBWI members were among the thousands impacted by the hurricane and its flooding. But do you know who they all are? Neither do we. A few stories have bubbled up to the surface (pun intended), but as members of this wonderful tribe, we are a family and the family needs to be aware of who its members are who have been and most importantly, still continue to be impacted. We would like to list those among us and if you are so willing, a brief description of what happened AND if you still need assistance. Include if you will schools and libraries that lost books and supplies so that we can also try to reach out to them. Depending on the response, we will do our best to address this most timely topic in this newsletter.
A reminder, please send your entries to Bruce@... by end of day Saturday.
Looking forward to seeing you all again at the next meeting, and the following weekend at our fabulous Houston conference! If you haven’t registered yet, there is still time to benefit from the incredible schedule your conference committee has crafted for this year.
