It was such a pleasure to spend a couple of days in Chicago at the ALA National Convention talking to people who love books. Jeanie Franz Ransom and I kept returning to the Peachtree booth like a pair of homing pigeons.
One highlight for me was getting a chance to meet the talented illustrator, Yoshiko Jaeggi, who did the cover art and thumbnail sketches for SAVING THE GRIFFIN.
I hope to post a few more things about ALA, but I have special company this week. My sister is visiting from Egypt.
