Tomorrow I’m having a holiday blog party and you’re all invited! When you click on my post tomorrow morning, you’ll see more information but all you really need to know is that I hope you can join me and everyone else who will come. I expect first guests to arrive early. When I open for business here each morning at 6:00 CST, I have a few notes waiting from folks on the east coast. As the morning rolls on, messages start arriving from east to west until those sleepyheads on the west coast finally decide to get up. I know, Sara Johnson, you’re an early bird. As are you, Ruth Culham, Jennifer Harrison, and any number of others.
I’m just saying that the party will start when the first guest arrives and we’ll rock all day until I finally seek my bed and leave the late revelers to their own vices. Can’t wait to see everyone. It should be long party so I’ll tell you what I told Matt Forrest, wear comfortable shoes. I’ve invited a number of authors, poets, artists, editors, playwrights, actors, librarians, professors, teachers, and many others who are associated in various ways with children’s literature.
