Oxford Conference for the Book


Okay, so we are in the throws of the Oxford Conference for the Book.  We are having so much fun being surrounded by writers, scholars and artists.  Here we are at dinner last night . . .

from the left--Jill Moore (manager of the greatest children's bookstore on earth), Hester Bass (author who's book The Secret World of Walter Anderson comes out with Candlewick this fall),  Jay Asher (13 Reasons Why--need I say more????), me (SF) and Katie.

We've got some great sessions coming up tomorrow including Trenton Lee Stewart author of The Mysterious Benedict Society who will be talking to 500+ fifth graders.  Stay tuned .. 

And, yes, that is a shrimp po-boy from Ajax right in front of me (if you were wondering).

Sarah Frances, I picked up the VIP with your cover feature last night and enjoyed the article, then I came to the blog and your site for the rest of the story. I'm thrilled for your success attained and success pursued, and you look like a million bucks to boot.

I'll be following your story here from now on and I'll be in line for a signed copy of your books when they come out.

Thanks so much Ben! Such kind words.

My youngest daughter is good friends with your niece. They yell across the fence at each other. It's pretty cute.

I will never forget those fried pickles! Or cheese fries with gravy! Or, or... Seriously, you have the best food in Mississippi.

Oh, and my word verification for this comment is RESHOT. Now, it only took me one try to shoot that toothpick into the ceiling at Ajax. Be honest, was that just beginner's luck?
