Welcome to the Project, Macmillan Children's Publishing Group

Macmillan Children's Publishing Group has made a significant contribution to the project. One of the branches of Macmillan Publishing is Henry Holt, who originally published the Chronicles of Prydain. Macmillan currently sells all of the Prydain books, Lloyd's first book "Time Cat", and his last book "The Golden Dream of Carlo Chuchio". Here is a link to Macmillan's page about Lloyd Alexander.

We are pleased to have this project be associated with Macmillan Children's Publishing Group.

Let's Get This Thing Started

I have been taking 16 credit hours this semester, but my last final is tomorrow. I am ready to fully turn my attention on the Lloyd Alexander project. Here is my list of to do for the next few weeks:

-Finish securing permission to obtain footage of a few key locations in Philadelphia and Drexel Hill
-Launch our fundraiser project on kickstarter.com
-Work more on story
-Travel to NY to interview Sharyn November and Lloyd's editor Ann (Durrell) McCrory
-Travel to Philadelphia to interview Sandy Limont, and obtain footage
-Obtain footage in Drexel Hill where Lloyd lived most of his life
-Travel to Atlanta to interview Kemie Nix

I think this should be enough to keep me busy for the next three weeks. I'm pretty excited to really feel that this project is underway.
