Those of you who've attended SCBWI Annual Conferences in the past probably remember the smiling face (and bow ties!) of Sam Wasson, who has been pitching in around SCBWI headquarters since he was a teenager. Here's a photo of Sammy helping SCBWI's Director of Special Projects Kim Turrisi facilitate manuscript & portfolio critiques at last year's summer conference in Los Angeles.
We are all very proud that Sammy, a child of SCBWI, is enjoying healthy sales and rave reviews for his latest book FIFTH AVENUE, 5 A.M.: AUDREY HEPBURN, BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S, AND THE DAWN OF THE MODERN WOMAN. We know it's not a kid's book, but Sammy has worked tirelessly to make the SCBWI a success in the past, so we're excited to tell you about HIS success.
