- So, I went to this fantastic Children's Literature Breakfast that is held annually by Andersons Bookshop. And there were a bazillion local authors as well as some huge headliner authors! I met Jordan Sonnenblick, Richard Peck, Francoise Mouly, Laura Ruby, Patricia McKissack, Claudia Gray, and then my old pals Kimberly Pauley, Kristina Springer, and Kristin Walker were there as well!
- In fact, afterwards Kristina, Kristin, Adam Selzer, a few other people, and I all went to Portillos and had a 3 hour lunch chatting about writing, blogging, and life in general. It was fantastic! I feel like we're all old friends now.
- Lemme see if I can dig out a few pictures...
Then, there's me getting a book signed by Richard Peck - who is a fantastic author and very humorous speaker. :)
And last of all, a sneak shot of Jordan Sonnenblick while I was waiting in line. Another fantastic and funny speaker. Probably the only author to pull off a humorous book about a kid with cancer.
Overall, tons of fun!
