The Book Stall Adventure!

Thank you so much to everyone who came out to The Book Stall in Winnetka this past Saturday to see Beverly Patt and Kristina Springer, and I chat about our books and writing for teens! The audience was a neat mix of my family (always), my amazing friends, some of my sweet students, and I think some members of a writing group. I actually preferred speaking on a panel to doing my own reading. It was fun answering the same questions and hearing everyone's different answers. I think the only people who bought books were me and the authors buying each others books. Maybe not. It was still fun! Here are the glamorous pictures (note my hair. I had it cut that morning, and I think the blow dry and straightening make me look a little like Mary Tyler Moore).

Chatting before the big event.













Beverly reading from her book, HAVEN.













Kristina, THE ESPRESSOLOGIST!














Me, looking weird. But whatever.

I really need to listen to my husband when he says he wants to move back to IL. So many cool author events-none here in MO. And cute haircut!:)

I hadn't seen your haircut before but I love this one!
And I'd love it if you'd email me these pics - your photographer is better than my photographer;)
Hope to do something again with you ladies...it was so enjoyable!
