As the cold and the holidays are upon us, I’m craving some #feelgoodfood for #feelgoodFriday, and this recipe for ex-boyfriend latkes by Molly Yeh is calling to me! Could be a fun #YA novel feature, no? #MSWL…

It’s #feelgoodfriday again! This story about how a woman was reunited with her own copy of her fave childhood book, THE SECRET GARDEN, a fave of mine too, in a museum is just the kind of bookish story I love to read about! #mswl #nationalfamilyliteracyday…

Happy #feelgoodfriday! This story from the summer has been on my mind as next week is #mentalhealthawarenessweek. I loved seeing these kids take a stand for students’ #mentalhealth and making a positive change in Oregon #kidlit #MSWL…

Happy #MSWL day! I just watched ALWAYS BE MY MAYBE on Netflix and would love to see a fun foodie #YA #ms like that which delivers big on ethnic flavors amidst a fun #RomCom setting. I’d also love to see more #NF or graphic NF aimed at middle graders!

It’s #FeelGoodFriday and tomorrow is #PhiladelphiaLiteracyDay in my home city! I love meeting and working with local authors, and this celebration of reading & literacy is a perfect complement to today’s #NationalReadaBookDay and #backtoschool! #MSWL…

In the spirit of #NationalSistersDay this coming Sunday, today’s #FeelGoodFriday is a great story about these #teen sisters on a mission to bring more books on Muslim women to mainstream libraries #diversekidlit #MSWL…

#FeelGoodFriday is 1 week late this month bc of the Fourth—but this #neighbor story warms my heart and takes on hunger, an even bigger problem in the summer! #MSWL…

My interview with the wonderful picture book author @taralazar is live today! She asks me all about my #MSWL and my agenting process…

Loved seeing Booksmart over Memorial Day weekend. Funny, a feel-good, and feminist bent? Would love to see a thought-provoking YA manuscript that makes me laugh as much as this did #WishlistWednesday #MSWL

It's #TeacherAppreciationWeek, so in the words of Ms. Frizzle, one of our favorite
teachers: “Get messy, make mistakes, go out there and explore…”! #MSWL

It’s #FeelGoodFriday and nesting season for birds! This stole my heart: thousands of people hand-knitted nests for abandoned baby birds at a North Carolina bird rescue organization. Wouldn’t this make a sweet #PB or even a photographic #kidlit book! #MSWL…

Local women’s @BrynMawrCollege celebrates May Day today! Love this @feministcampus article on Midge Maisel’s alma mater's transformation from very tea+pearls to feminist safe space for women+gender nonconforming folks. YA novel anyone? #WishWednesday #MSWL…

We didn’t really celebrate #EarthDay when I was young, though the holiday has actually existed since 1970. Glad we’re now using reusable containers for my kids’ lunches instead of all those brown bags! I’d love to see #MG #NF about the story behind Earth Day #MSWL #WishWednesday

Alyssa Eisner Henkin @AgentHenkin · 17 Apr 2019

Those who know me know I’m a sucker for a beautifully-conjured sense of place. My heart broke to see #NotreDame in flames, so this week’s wish is for stories that conjure the places, large and small, famous and not, that we each hold dear. #MSWL #WishlistWednesday

Alyssa Eisner Henkin @AgentHenkin · 12 Apr 2019

Remember #FeelGoodFriday for the first of the month? Well last week it didn’t happen - April Fool’s! So instead, today I’m sharing a story about a teacher wearing a dress covered in her students’ doodles. #picturebook anyone? #PBchat #MSWL…

Alyssa Eisner Henkin @AgentHenkin · 10 Apr 2019

"How used they keep themselves contented/Before this monster was invented?/... Don't you know?/We'll say it very loud and slow: THEY..USED...TO...READ!" Happy
#NationalPoetryMonth, and may my kids' brains not rot from looking at screens!

In commemoration of the 51st anniversary of Dr. King’s assassination this week, I’d love to see more kids books that preserve his incredible legacy. #socialjustice, nonfiction #activism that inspires kids of all ages. #WishlistWednesday #MSWL

Between the third grader winning his first basketball tournament and husband obsessing over the NCAA, #MarchMadness is here. I look forward to some manuscript madness as we kick off #PBParty. The search for my final 4 is on! #MSWL #WishlistWednesday

"Winter will pass, the days will lengthen, the ice will melt in the pasture pond," wrote E.B. White. Feeling renewed and reinvigorated to take on all those spring submissions coming out of hibernation… #MSWL #WishlistWednesday #SpringTime
