I'm exhausted and exilerated at the same time -- or is that impossible?
Answer: I found the workshop magical, so anything is possible!
Rather than trying to write a complete report tonight I'll share a little, and promise a second installment. One of today's highlights was a reading this morning by Richard from his work in progress. If you're a fan of A Long Way from Chicago and A Year Down Yonder, you'll be happy to know he's writing a third book with Grandma Dowdel. The reading was fantastic!
Prior to even knowing of the reading, Richard was presented a button calling for "Grandma Dowdel for President". He is pictured with Carol Grannick. (Richard neither confirmed or denied that Grandma Dowdel was considering entering the race.)
Richard with me at book signing time:
Esther Hershenhor (Illinois-SCBWI Regional Advisor), Peter Meyerhoff and Jenny Meyerhoff. Jenny is in the Class of 2k8. Her husband is also writing and possibly in the class of 2k?? ..............
I promise more pictures in the days to come!
