Giving thanks

Not to get too schmaltzy over here on the Stenhouse blog, but this past weekend we had a lot to be thankful for in our little corner of the publishing world. Stenhouse celebrates its 20th anniversary this year and we used that as an excuse (not that we needed one!) to throw a party during this year’s NCTE conference in Boston.

Here are some snapshots of some of our wonderful authors and Stenhouse staffers. Have a happy Thanksgiving!

We always love to travel to conferences because we get to see you, our readers, and we get to see our authors. We all enjoy putting faces to names after corresponding by e-mail for months during the book production process. So here are a few pictures from our booth and from a little party where we all got to mingle authors, staff, and future authors.
