These here are pics from last night's party for RED--at a dim sum palace. I finally learned why this title. "RED," it was explained to me, signals the outpouring of feeling that 58 emerging teenage girl writers spill onto the page of this anthology, which the editor referred to as "The real Daring Book for Girls." (Hey, I still maintain the original Daring Book is daring too.)
The girls were terrific--talented, moving, and real. And it was fun hanging with Laura from Catalyst, Lauren Sandler, and Lauren's awesome dude Justin, too (pictured above, from left to right). More on the book here.
I am SO having my next book party somewhere where they serve sticky pork buns. Mmmm.
