My cab is on the way to pick me up for an ungodly early flight to Debver, so this will be a quick summary p0st.
Day Two = two middle school visits, one diner connected to a school library, one electric car, four cats, a couple chinchillas, a bunch of birds, many, many nice teachers.
And a chicken.
I spoke to groups at Valley View and South View Middle School. (South View students & Librarian Cathy Nelson seen here).
South View has a cool diner right next to the library run by the students and the librarian.
Cool thing seen at lunch: an electric car available for use by Coop member in Linden Hills.
Signed stock at two stores in the afternoon, did a phone interview, and headed for Wild Rumpus, one of the coolest children’s bookstores on the planet.
Enjoyed a wonderful crowd of mostly teachers there. Thanks for coming out on a rainy night, everyone! And thank you, Facebook Friend Heidi for coming, too!
There is a menagerie of animals at Wild Rumpus, including ferrets, chinchillas, birds, a rat, a few other things I know I’m forgetting, four Manx cats who stroll and patrol the aisles.
And a sweet and pretty chicken named Pimento.

Sounds like a super fun day. I want to go to a school with a cafe next to the library!
Happy B-Day BW
It’s amazing you are able to blog on your book tour! 🙂
Maybe you and B.H. (that’s Better Half, right?) should consider a chicken coop in the tundra. Still laughing at ThunderCHIKIN’s comment.
HAPPY BIRTHDAYYYYYY! 😀
