The Sterling North Book Festival in Edgerton, Wisconsin

I had such a wonderful time visiting in Edgerton, Wisconsin! Thank you everyone for hosting me!

Below is a photo of me with a book written by the girl standing next to me. I attended a reading of young writers and illustrators -- a lot of fun, and a lot of talent!

And here I am standing with Arielle & Ole Anderson. Arielle is Sterling North's daughter, and we were in Sterling North's home in Edgerton. Next to us is Christie, Arielle & Ole's daughter.

I highly recommend reading Sterling North's RASCAL, and following that up with a visit to Sterling North's home

Thanks so much for inviting me. I had a wonderful time!

Hi everyone!

I'll be at the Edgerton Sterling North Book & Film Festival next weekend (Saturday, October 28th). If you're going, please come up to say howdy, okay? I'd love that. 

They've decided to name me the "Sterling North Award Recipient for Excellence in Children's Literature." Wow!  It's definitely unexpected, but I'm so grateful.

I'm also looking forward to meeting book lovers in Edgerton, Wisconsin. Book lovers combined with Wisconsin in the fall sounds about perfect to me. I do like Wisconsin. It's such a good, no nonsense, place. And for me, it feels like home -- as you'd expect it would, since I grew up there. 

So meet me in Wisconsin. It'll be nice!
