BEA picture book art auction

BEA hit the Javits Center in NYC earlier this week, and thanks to our amazing friend Lauren Castillo -- her new book, The Troublemaker, is out June 3 -- I scored an extra ticket to the picture book art auction. It was thrilling to see the artwork in person and really, really hard not to bid on everything! My other favorites, Anna Raff and Dasha Tolstikova, also had pieces in the auction.
