I hate baseball, but I love Philadelphia, so GO PHILLIES.
(I cannot believe I just wrote that.)
Yesterday was a calmer-paced day, which was much appreciated.
The librarian, Karen Hutt, and the teachers did a terrific job preparing the students. They even decorated the room I presented in with chains hung from the ceiling. This is me with Bill Young. Technically he is my Author Nanny right now, but I’m not sure he would appreciate that title. Bill is one of the best media escorts in the business. He took me around the Chicago area on my PROM tour and it is wonderful to work with him again. I will call him my Author Shepherd, because he’s not quite the nanny type.
The evening event at Anderson’s was wonderful, 50 people with loads of questions, plus a 6th-grader who interviewed me for her school paper. Thank you, thank you to everyone who came out, especially the teachers who didn’t flinch when I admitted I still don’t know what a theme is.
I leave in a few minutes for Milwaukee (yes, I have been singing the Laverne & Shirley theme song all morning). I’m scheduled for a lunch with librarians, a bunch of stock signings, and then, The Main Event.
Finishing up the librarian thread of today’s post, Librarian Goddesses Cindy Dobrez and Lynn Rutan have published their review of CHAINS on their Bookends blog. Check it out!
