A footnote to the cover of the Nov. 8 PW: We were in the middle of the photo shoot when word came that Just Kids had been named a National Book Award finalist. Those of us in the studio not having our picture taken huddled: Who would tell her? And how great would it be to get a photo of her reaction? That would be great! But nothing was said until photog Matthew Peyton put the Hasselblad down, and it didn’t matter, anyway. She’d found out a couple days before and had been playing it cool since.
So, if it looks to you like she’s keeping a secret, well, she sorta is.
