Member of the Year photos

It has been delightful.
Here are some of the photos that folks have taken of me at the announcement. I was so thrilled with this photo (thanks jolie) of me with Lin and Steve. All the way from my seat in the ballroom I saw Lin grinning and grinning as Steve was reading the announcement. How fantasmagorically special this is!

with Lin and Steve
say a few words Chris
note sure what i was saying here….
Trina Sotira took this the following photo and sent it along to me — she won a little door prize at the Golden Kite Luncheon … tuition to the next SCBWI conference!
And at the autograph party I made sure I grabbed this photo¬†with Jolie Stekly, last year’s winner and great blogger of the announcement.
So there are a few happy snaps from the announcement. I am just a little chuffed still! Thanks for the wonderful honour.

  1. I’m am so so so thrilled for you, Chris. And you are most welcome for the photos. I’m so glad that I was able to capture a few.

    It was so fun looking back on all your conference posts, especially the surprise of it all. I still remember all those same emotions and reactions: how certain things all made sense; the strangeness of listening to Steve speak of the winner(s) and then finally realizing it was me; and then to feel stunned the entire rest of the conference.

    I hope you ride the joy of it all the way to 2011!

    Also, I love the photo you took of the entire crowd after you gave your word!

  2. Hi Chris,
    Big hugs and HUGE congrats to you! I was so excited to have heard the news that you received this year’s Member of the Year award – no one better to hand Jolie’s and my “crown” over to than you! And thanks for letting me re-live the experience, too, through your words. Quite surreal, isn’t it?!

  3. Chris – I’m so pleased for you!! It’s much deserved and I was thrilled to hear about it. I’m only sorry I couldn’t be there to hoot.

    hugs –
