Walter Dean Myers at NCTE 2009

— Jason Scott

The 2009 NTCE conference in Philadelphia was a great one for Prestwick House. In addition to being in nearby Philadelphia (hooray for no air travel!), it was chock-a-block full of interesting teachers and writers who stopped by our booth to chat.

Case in point, young adult author Walter Dean Myers stopped by our booth to say hello. Being a fan, I asked him to sign our catalogue which he graciously did. The whole experience has me wondering who we might bump into next year’s NTCE conference in Disney World.

I’m hoping that it will be the most literary of all the Disney characters (and the character who still moves the most Disney merchandise) Winnie the Pooh.
