So often author visits on the last day before vacation can be a chore, but not Westmere Elementary. It was the perfect combination of a cozy library and kids who were engaged and enthusiastic. The only odd part – and I really hate to even bring this up – were their strange, round, paper plate-like faces. But they seemed happy. What a great visit.
I had a funny experience between presentations. I was sitting in the back of the library signing books, and when I looked up I noticed these two sitting side by side on the shelf. Maybe I’m just oversaturated with news about the recession, but these titles seem to encapsulate the current economic conditions pretty well. I had to laugh.
