Deb from Readerbuzz brings us more content and pictures from the BEA floor today!
"Is this the end of the line?" I asked, seeing a BEA-short, twenty-person line next to the Disney booth first thing this morning.
The woman laughed, and pointed to where the line broke, picked back up on the other side of the aisle, curved, broke again, resumed, broke again, and curved around the corner.
I hustled to the end. I don't stand in lines. But this was Mo Willems.
"And you are the lucky last-person-in-line," the publicist told me. "You just made the cut."
I got to spend a delightful hour in line talking to a first-time author and an independent publishing consultant. They both had seven-year-olds. Do I really need to say anything more about why they were willing to wait in a long line for the latest Mo.
I rounded the corner and...oh, be still my heart, there he was.
Mo Willems in the flesh.
I don't wait in lines, and I don't take my photo with authors. But this was Mo Willems.
Oh my goodness. It was a Mo morning. (Happy!)
