Booze and picture books?

Today, which happens to be three years to the day when Thirty Minutes Over Oregon: A Japanese Pilot's World War II Story was released, I learned that the book was (coincidentally) part of an event held last night at the annual conference of the Virginia Association of Teachers of English.

A wine/chocolate/book pairing.

I'm told passages of the featured books were read while wine was sipped and chocolate nibbled.

Picture books and booze don't normally go together. 

But, of course, this was an adults-only affair. 

I don't know why my book was chosen, but I am honored by its inclusion, especially because it is among such distinguished company (meaning the other authors/illustrators, though I'm sure the wine and chocolate were also great).
