I've had a number of comments (which I have approved for posting) about my political remarks. I guess it all boils down to the fact that we are very fortunate to live in a country where ordinary citizens are allowed to state their political beliefs publicly....and others are permitted, even encouraged, to disagree publicly...and as long as we don't get into fistfights or even name-calling....well, it is all to the good.

I went yesterday to see "Man on Wire," an astounding documentary about Phillipe Petit and his incredible wire-walking between the twin towers in 1974.  Even though of course we know the outcome...still, it is a hair-raising film ... and for someone like me who has a bit of acrophobia, really heart-in-mouth throughout.

But here is the REALLY astounding thing: I just went to Amazon.com to buy the Mordecai Gerstein book about Petit ("The Man Who Walked Between the Towers") ...which won the Caldecott Medal in 2004....for my grandsons.  And it is NOT AVAILABLE!  The text says they don't know when it will be back in print.  

Of course I will find it someplace else, some wonderful independent bookstore like Porter Square Books here in Cambridge. If it weren't 8:42 PM I would do that right now.

Not to worry the weather is nice down here in Florida. Are you going to the Mt Dora Festival of Reading while in Florida? And try to grab a meal at Yoder's while in Sarasota, a trip there just isn't complete without it!

Ms. Lowry,
I am a student at the University of Iowa and will be completing an author study about you. I was wondering if I may contact you if I have any questions regarding your work?
I also have a blog that you can visit http://chroniclesofpanther">http://chroniclesofpanther@blogspot.com." rel="nofollow">http://chroniclesofpanther">http://chroniclesofpanther@blogspot.com.
My author study is for a class in the College of Education titled Reading and Responding to Children's Literature. I am a HUGE fan of your work and am looking forward to learning more about you.
