My name is AnnaLee Dragon, and I’m the new Executive Director of NYLA, starting about a week ago. I’m sure this was a standing group/meeting for Jeremy, who left the position here about 6 months ago.


I’m not very familiar with the Center for the Book, but I’d love to learn about the work you’re all doing! Unfortunately as it’s only my eighth day on the job, I cannot make the meeting today, but I’d be happy to talk with you about this group and attend future meetings.


Thanks so much for any background/information you can offer, and I hope to speak with you soon!
