Saturday night parties

A glorious day of rest! Slept in, ate a sloooow breakfast, talked with Beth the Best Girl Friend, talked some more, talked, talked (you see where I’m going here) drank tea, talked, etc. This was all recovery from last night’s fun: a nice dinner and party that flew by way too fast.

OK, maybe not so scandalous. But you clicked. That’s how powerful words are.

Image hosted by TinyPic.comThe dinner had yummy food and highly dignified pats of butter, seen here with the help of the lovely and talented Lori Goodson of Kansas. It was put on by Penguin, who publishes all my YA books.

Image hosted by TinyPic.comAfter dinner, three authors read from their works – T.A. Barron, Joan Bauer, and me. (Yes, I read a few pages from my WIP. It was nerve-wracking, but they seemed to like it.)

After dinner, we headed to the Simon & Schuster dessert party. I’m pretty sure I saw M.T. Anderson, but I didn’t get a chance to talk to him or stalk him for a photo. I did see these folks:

That’s all for now. It’s time to get read for the ALAN reception, which is a gathering of teachers, professors and authors who all care deeply about books for teenagers. Will def. be a good night. Pictures tomorrow!

  7. The book Speak

    I thought that the book was a good book. It created a new sense of what could happen. The fact that it happened to a student made it realistic to me that something like this could happen in any school and to any one.
