Here's a few words from Joe about the event:
On Monday, Nov. 13th I attended the awards ceremony for the "Best Illustrated Books 2012" as chosen by The New York Times. It was a fun event and a great opportunity to meet some other fantastic illustrators. Illustrators are usually holed up in our studios working, so getting the chance to meet Albertine, illustrator of Little Bird, Henry Cole, author and illustrator of Unspoken: A Story from the Underground Railroad, Oliver Jeffers, author and illustrator of The Hueys in the New Sweater, and Chris Raschka, this year's Caldecott winner for A Ball for Daisy, was a real treat. All in all it was a great time, attended by a group of really interesting people.
