Description of Pictures: Katy Kelly:
Katy Kelly is the author of two award-winning Random House series for middle readers, “Lucy Rose” and “Melonhead.” Both are set on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, where, not coincidentally, Kelly grew up. Her goal, she says. “is to make readers laugh their heads off. She has succeeded. Melonhead “is laugh out loud funny, rivaling Stink and Fudge in its trouble-maker quotient,” says School Library Journal. Publisher’s Weekly “The book (Melonhead) has an excellent shot at winning over reluctant readers.” Lucy Rose “In the spirit of Junie B. Jones, Amber Brown and mother of them all, Ramona, comes Lucy Rose,” says Booklist.
Lisa Martin is a returning GBF author. She has worked as an educator and children’s poet and currently resides in Charlottesville, Virginia. Anton and Cecil: Cats at Sea was her first book for young readers, and the beginning of a trilogy cowritten with her aunt, the novelist Valerie Martin. Anton and Cecil: Cats on Track is the second book in the series.

Bigger photos? To save space on the server and because the modern camera images are so large, photos larger than 640x480 have not been loaded on this page. If you need the bigger sizes of selected photos, email me and I can email them back to you or I can re-load this page temporarily with the bigger versions restored.
2016 photos: Equipment this year: I continued to use my Fuji XS-1 cameras but, depending on the event, I also used a Nikon D7000.
Seven relatively short trips this year:
two Civil War Trust conference (Gettysburg, PA and West Point, NY, with a side-trip to New York City),
my 11th consecutive San Diego Comic-Con trip (including sites in Utah, Nevada, and California),
a quick trip to Michigan for Uncle Wayne's funeral,
two additional trips to New York City, and
a Civil Rights site trip to Alabama during the November elections. Being in places where people died to preserve the rights of minority voters made the Trumputin election even more depressing.
Number of photos taken this year: just over 610,000.
