Here's my best news of the year -- so far 

Anne Schwartz at Random House's Schwartz & Wade Books bought world rights to Michelle Edwards's A Hat for Mrs. Goldman, illustrated by G. Brian Karas. In the picture book, a girl knits a special hat for an elderly neighbor, who is also her knitting teacher. Publication is sent for fall 2016; Lori Kilkelly at Rodeen Literary Management represented the author, and Brenda Bowen at Sanford J. Greenburger Associates
