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!
