Day 8 – Ann Arbor

I’m writing this in the Ann Arbor Library which has wireless Internet. Someday the whole world will have it. Boggles the mind.

Spoke this morning at Community and Huron high schools here – great kids, lots of energy. My BH had to fly home today. *weeping*. We had a blast watching the NCAA tournament selection and eating too many chicken wings. I miss him wicked.

I loved everybody’s LJ comments about the marching bands in hotels yesterday.

Lauren writes: Firstly, I would like to say how much I adore your writing. Speak is on my all-time favorite books list. I also loved Catalyst and I just bought Prom today. Anyway, I know you are from the Philadelphia area, and I read the “Special Thanks To…” thing in the back of Prom. The part where you said who you listened to while writing it, and one of them was Y100. I don’t know if you already know this or not, but sadly on February 24th, Y100 was taken off the air. (Full story & a lot of other awesome stuff is at www.y100rocks.com) Please, if you can contribute anything to the Save Y100 Cause, please help. Anything you can do is greatly appreciated.

Yes, I wailed and gnashed my teeth when the radio station was so cruelly snatched off the air (see archived Feb. posts). Thanks for giving me another chance to plug the effort again. Thank also, to Erin who wrote in to say she liked PROM, especially the epilogue.

Schedule notes:
Tonight I’m speaking here in the Ann Arbor Library, 7pm.
Tomorrow I’m speaking at schools. I’ll be presenting at the Battle Creek Library at 7pm.

  1. This is incredibly hard for me to do..

    But Thankyou SO SO SO much for coming to speak today. I was out in the audience listening to you speak today at CHS and your amazing.
    You apparently went out to Lunch with one of my friends mothers and it feels incredibly weird to be talking to a famous, published, author.

    In their journal of all places.

    Okay, I’ll stop rambling. Thankyou again!

  10. Radio Stations

    Don’t you hate it when radio stations are so rudely taken away? I sure do! Why must they take them away? … There’s hardly any good new music around as it is without them taking away half the decent stuff! And no, I don’t mean rap; I detest rap! Lol!
