Book Tour Days 12 & 13 – Festival and Friends

Before I get to the Festival photos, I have a few announcements and links.

My email address, laurie AT writerlady DOT com is all messed up and apparently has been for a week. I am very sorry about this. OfficeMouse is going to try and fix it tomorrow. I’ll let you know what happens.

Bookavore sent an awesome link, the story of the daughter of a slave who is voting for Obama.

A moment of silence, please, for the death of Studs Terkel.

Publishers Weekly has a nice article about me and my fellow National Book Award Finalists.

The state of Delaware arranged for perfect weather for the Book Festival and the crowds responded. There were several familiar faces….

  1. Oh My Gosh! The Stinky Cheese Man! You are so lucky! *laughs* You know, that was one of the first books I ever got from my aunt when I was growing up (she is a book editor) followed quickly by Beauty and the Beast and Where The Wild Things Are. All three books I still have and will pass onto my children if they don’t crumble before they get to them… “Yay!” for Husband and daughter visits also!
