I got home this morning from my 7-city trip (counting Ann Arbor separately from Detroit) and am still unpacking and doing laundry but will post some photos. Unfortunately I can't seem to load the vidoo of an auditorium full of wonderful kids in Chicago, singlng Happy Birthday to me! But I can show you the necklace some of those kids made for me:


A mouse, an apple, and a willow tree: representing three of my books!

And here I am also in Chicago (Naperville, actually, at Anderson's Books), with Eric Rhomann who did the charming ilustrations for "Bless This Mouse"

LL and Eric R

And now: The amazing bed in my San Francisco hotel:

Beb SF

and the also amazing bed in my LA hotel (okay, the bed is not amazing; but the BATHTUB beside it is, well, unique in its placement):

Bed & tub

Here I am with Sean Astin, in LA, at the Getty Center:

LL and SA

His lovely wife, Christine and their three daughters were there as well and we got a chance to talk about the film of NUMBER THE STARS. I'll keep you posted.

And here, brought to me from Copenhagen by Sean and Christine:

Mermaid dish

A nice memento of that lovely city. They have spent a lot of time there working on research for the movie.

No photos from Denver (where it snowed!) or Minneaplos/St. Paul or Detroit/Ann Arbor. I guess I had gotten tired by then.  Or, actually...people had give me GIFTS...some large ones, actually...and it made my luggage situation more difficult, and finding the camera, buried under stuff, was hard, so I gave up on the documentation.

It is great to be home. Martin and Alfie agree.

I can top that: I was interviewed about The Fences Between Us, set in WWII, and I said that the Japanese Navy bombed Pearl Harbor on December 6.

I imagine the pressure of having to come up with unrehearsed answers on the spot can challenge the best of minds.
BTW.. I visited the Holocaust Museum in Washington DC this week and saw Number The Stars in their gift shop shelves. I noticed that all the young people (hundreds it seemed) who saw it had the same reaction "Awww.. Number the Stars" with a sigh of affectionate recognition.
