NYC: The Bay Academy

A couple of weeks ago, I took a ride down to Sheepshead Bay in Brooklyn, where I was pleased to sit on a panel at I.S. 98, The Bay Academy, a middle school for creative, artistic kids. I was invited there by the school and by the organization PENCIL, to sit on a panel in front of some 600 students and talk about writing. It was a pleasure for many reasons, not the least of which was that a fellow panelist was none other than Paul Levitz, legendary author of my favorite childhood comic book, Legion of Super-Heroes.

Also on the panel was Phyllis Ehrlich, former editor of Disney Adventures magazine, while Phyllis’ husband Joel acted as moderator. We all had a great time, and the kids were terrific. Here are some pics from the day…
