A day with readers

I drove over 300 miles round trip yesterday---exhausting but worth it.

The Albany Children's Books Festival was a hit! The organizers were warm and helpful. And I met a lot of wonderful people, eager children, talented artists and writers and so many avid readers. Some of my high points: meeting an 8-year old true fan of No Castles Here and reading his favorite chapter; eating a delicious lunch with the best rice pudding for dessert; and making origami boxes with countless children, and watching them show them off to family and friends.

My thanks to the organizers at the Albany Academies for pulling the day together.
