One of my favorite things

Hi everyone,

First, thanks to everyone for the good wishes about our condo as Michael moved onto land yesterday. Preliminary reports are encouraging so our area was spared the worst. Our hearts go out to the communities a few miles to the east of us who suffered so much destruction.

As for today, I get to participate once again in the Children’s Literature Festival of the Ozarks, which is held annually on the campus of Missouri State University in Springfield. More than a dozen authors and artists will meet with groups of students in grades 4-8 to talk about what we do, offer tips, and answer questions. I’ve participated in this event each year since it began thirty-eight years ago and always look forward to it. I’m grateful to the hard working committee of wonderful women who make this happen every year.

  1. Boy oh boy, I’ve done that splendid festival more than once & you’re right, David: that’s a terrific group of ladies who put on that book carnival and the kids are always marvelous. Lucky them, getting to meet you!
