Margaret Wise Brown Birthday Party


Let's call it the First Annual MWB Birthday Party, because I for one would like to do it again. There were cupcakes, baffled tourists, pleased parents, delighted cupcake-eating kids, random teens, and some stalwart librarians, game artists, and children's book enthusiasts. Dianne Hess of Scholastic Press stole the day by actually dressing like Margaret Wise Brown. Betsy Bird knowledgeably informed us that Margaret and Ursula Nordstrom would have had their protest tea on the north stairs of the Library, as that was the entrance to the children's room. But we had our celebration on the front steps, and we here at Bunny Eat Bunny hope you celebrated the life of this fabulous woman with fur and poetry and sensuality and rash behavior.

I really like celebrating birthdays with friends. Searching for a party venue for mine at the end of this month. Not sure about the dinner or lunch. But drinks and sweets will be ordered from quality places. Dishes will be done according to preferences of guests. Also hunting for a theme to make it more interesting.
