While we ran a little long and no one could ever find a cab, I would have to say that our first Boston Globe-Horn Book Awards at Simmons and the next day's first Horn Book at Simmons Colloquium went  swimmingly. Here are a few photos:

Nonfiction winner Betsy Partridge channeling Miss Brodie

Laurel Croza and Matt James, picture book winners
Hmm, fiction winner Rebecca Stead seems more amused than her editor, Wendy Lamb

That's my grandson you're autographing for, Peter, so cheer up!

Lost In Translation, sans scotch
Picture-book royalty, Helen Oxenbury and John Burningham
Next year's BGHB chair Jen Brabander with Raina Telgemeier and her husband Dave Roman. That smile was totally worth it, Raina!
You can't see much of it here, but Megan Whalen Turner won the prize for Best Dress
Judge Gregory Maguire presents the picture books

Judges Julie Just and Martha Parravano tell all
