Check out Jaime Temairik's rollicking, silly and informative interview with Executive Art Director and Associate Publisher at Penguin's Dial Books for Young Readers, Lily Malcom.
Lily shares what catches her eye in a bookstore, plays the "Kill, kiss or marry: Helvetica, Baskerville or Comic Sans?" game and even shares some of New York's secrets: like what's the human equivalent of a Scooby Snack? (Hint: Chocolate is involved.)
We even get to see her office.
To get to see Lily Malcom in person (and Jack Gantos, Sharon Draper, Kate Messner and Elizabeth Wein!), you'll have to be at the upcoming SCBWI Winter Conference in New York City, February 22 and 23, 2014. While the intensives on Friday February 21 are sold out, there are a limited number of spaces still available for the main Saturday and Sunday of the Conference.
You can find out all the details here.
We hope to see you there!
