Delia Ephron and Edward Koren: Do I Have to Say Hello?

Hello. Author Delia Ephron and illustrator Edward Koren showed up recently at the Barnes & Noble in Tribeca to promote their new book Do I Have To Say Hello? Young people in the audience were treated to a  discussion of manners and a drawing demonstration on the subject of Thanksgiving dinner.

Edward Koren and Delia Ephron

What shall we have for Thanksgiving dinner? Let's start with a turkey.

Let's add broccoli.

Carrots and potatoes have been added.

Cranberries! A gravy boat with a diving board was added for the cranberries.

Now let's bake a pie. We start with butter and eggs. We have to break the eggs.

Of course! We need a pumpkin. 

The kids decided the pie should have a mouse... 

Delia Ephron asks what else should be in the drawing.

It's a dog, wouldn't you know? 

Next Ed Koren draws a high chair.

Finally, some of the kids provided some scribbles for Mr. Koren to complete.
