Grace Lin, Anna Alter, Libby Koponen, Meghan McCarthy, and Linda Wingerter all sat on the panel. I served as moderator. The “girls” told the audience how they met each other; how they got started in publishing children’s books; why they formed the Blue Rose Girls; how they help, support, and advise each other about their creative processes and works-in-progress; and about books and projects that they are currently working on. Of course, the name of fellow Blue Rose Girl Alvina Ling came up in the conversation a number of times.
