I have to admit I love a good surprise… A friend of mine contacted me last minute to photograph the Associates of the Boston Public Library’s annual meeting and their Hundred-Year Retroactive Book Award competition. I had absolutely no idea I’d be photographing Jack Gantos, Ty Burr of The Boston Globe, Gregory Maguire, and Stona Fitch. How fun is that?! They each read from and discussed titles from 1912 best seller lists. I felt bad that my good friend Melissa – an aspiring children’s writer – wasn’t there with me!
In other news, one of my clients recently launched their business website – check out Maxine Lorenzo Designs! The business features beautiful, sturdy, handcrafted leather tote bags. Congrats, Gayle!
