I’ve been AWOL from blogging for a week, but it has been for the best of all possible reasons.
Last weekend I was at the Brooklyn Book Festival. Saw all kinds of kidlit people like,
A couple of my blog readers showed up armed with life-sustaining popcorn for me, like Rebecca from Austin and these girls,
The next day Bookavore and I played tourist.
Other highlights of the weekend including running into someone who knew me when I was in elementary school, someone who knew me in junior high, and hanging out with Jerry, who went to high school with me. Small world moments constantly.
And then…. and then…
BH and I snuck off to Montreal for a loooooooooooooooooooong overdue rest. But I’ve already posted too many pics today.
Look for Montreal tomorrow!
I think instead of Montreal tomorrow, I need to post about a couple of absurd and dangerous attempts to ban my books in high schools. Stay tuned.
