EMMA! MARCIE! SARAH! Hello!!
A belated, HI, Julie! I knew you were with us on launch night. I knew it!
I like David’s coverup. Fig leaf underwear is totally coming back in!
This is so cool, feels like we’re almost there! Wonderful people supporting and working on this great project! :)
Hey Kati and Co.! So glad to know you were watching!
watching from New Orleans. Go team!
Go Sarah! You look beautiful!
My vote for Name that Cocktail is “Gettin’ Figgy with It!”
That’s is TOO funny! We should make naming the drink a backer reward!
Love hearing Sarah LIVE!
Hi Whitney! So glad your were watching!
Julie Hedlund, we must be related. Or drink the same Coolaid!
Could someone give me the Kickstarter link?
It’s in the details, Sarah! Fantastic!
WOW! Thanks E!

Bravo, the TTT&T team!

LOVE the map! Great job, Roxie!
Love the story of the stone house in Northern Italy!

Murders and Monks = great story title and idea!

Having so much fun listening to the event after the fact! What Fun it Was! Thank you KidLit TV for an amazing Live Stream!!
Looks like you had a wild party. What a great stream – Marcie is a PRO! Good luck as the campaign rolls out
She was such a great MC!
She was PERfect!
Wish I could have been there! However, it was great fun to watch the event. I couldn’t help focusing on David’s cardboard fig leaf—one of those interesting historical details! On the V&A site they tell the story of the half-meter plaster fig leaf created for David statue presented to Queen Victoria. :-) http://www.vam.ac.uk/content/articles/d/davids-fig-leaf/
The fig leaves were created by KLTV team member Kassia with the help of our camera person, Eric! After several attempts to frame the shot so that viewers would not be distracted, we decided to ad not one, but two fig leafs!
Ha! I should have said fig leaves in the plural! I thought they were amusing.
Making history come alive! Sounds fabulous!
Yes, I didn’t “notice” history, either. Great points. I think you guys are standing on the tip of the historical iceberg.
Triple P cocktail – sounds tasty, goes with Triple TnT.
Another great cocktail name!
Jeff Baron, one of our wonderful StoryMakers’ alums, makes a great point: as a kid we were just taught about the “hot dogs” of history without really learning more about who they were as characters. Thank you for chatting on camera Jeff!
Fantastic point! Love the alliteration too!
Hello debut StoryMaker, Roxie! You were fantastic! LOVE your map of Florence and absolutely thrilled to be lucky enough to have a copy of my own!
Rocco – funny and charming as always! Bravo!
Such a great party, Julie! Fun to revisit it as we turn the corner into the final stretch!
