the Wrap!

SCBWI Bologna 2016 is done and dusted.

Team Bologna, greatly expanded this year with the tireless work from Elisabeth Norton, Patti Buff, Marilyn Salerno, Margo Lemieux and Elizabeth Dulemba, is back on home soil; the well duct-taped cartons with our superalative banners are all nestled securely in the resting quarters at headquarters; and we know that feelers are beginning for work that was displayed at our booth. 

Bologna 2016.

Here then is a link to the Photo gallery, the Digital Catalogue, our Bologna Illustrator's Gallery, as well as a list of blog and web posts from some of us who were there. So grab a cuppa, put your feet up, rest a while (but first feed your cat/dog/dragon), and …

Laugh, and

… and see you there in 2018!

There is a BIG team behind Bologna – Kathleen, Angela, Susan and Christopher are the face of Bologna but there are others involved too – Elisabeth and Patti, Marilyn and Margo (regional advisors who were in Bologna and did so very much to make our job as smooth as it could be), heaps of the headquarters folk who did everything from helping Susan design our booth and the promotional material (Sarah Baker), putting together our digital catalogue (Sarah Diamond) to answering my multitudinous web questions (Joshua Smith), our BiG judges (Laurent Linn, Naomi Kojima, Doug Cushman), as well as Steve and Lin who always say yes!  SCBWI Bologna 2016 would not have been the success it was without you.
