Here I am with a bunch of glitzy guys: Kadir Nelson, John Green, Walter Dean Myers, and Chris Colfer (from "Glee") at the BEA convention...we all spoke at the Children's Book and Author Breakfast, such a nice occasion. One had the feeing that all 1100 poeple in the audience were soulmates.

And here I am a couple of weeks earlier, with Jan Coates, of the Mount Desert Island Readers and Writers Project.  Tough to get to the island...a 9-passenger plane; I wouldn't want to go in fog or stormy weather. But worth the trip!  A whole lot of seventh graders had been reading and studyng THE GIVER; it was great to be with them, and with Jan and all the others who work so hard.

 

Now I am back in Maine, by myself, after a nice weekend with two friends here, and about to start work on a new Gooney Bird book...the sixth. After lots of rain th lawns and gardne are green and lush...everything looks so beautiful.  And tomorrow I will visit the book club of the local middle school.  Maybe I'llhave some new photos to post if the kids don't mind going public.

Jeff Bridges has been trying to get the movie made for a long time. His rights expire in November so I'm hoping he and his people can get it into the next phase by then. If not: I have other people waiting.
