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).
