J. K. Rowling, R. L. Stine and Me?

Q: In which newspaper would you find mega-best-selling authors J. K. Rowling, R. L. Stine and, um, me in the same article?

A: The San Francisco Chronicle.

Support the First Amendment, Read a Banned Book


Banned Books Week is September 27th through October 4th. Click here to read a letter from Chip Gibson, President & Publisher of Random House Children’s Books. Learn more here.



And still other book news . . .


Thanks to the people from the Osceola library system who did a great job putting together the Fall into Reading Book Festival.



Here I am at the display table with my goodies. (Notice the voter registration forms in the middle of the table? Everyone I asked was already registered to vote. Are you? If not, hurry it up; you only have until October 6th!)


I had a blast meeting Chris Crutcher and hearing him speak and read from some of his books.


Lisa Campbell Ernst was wonderful, and I enjoyed our conversation, but unfortunately had to leave before her presentation.


Big thanks to Hubby for waking at 5 a.m. and driving 2 ½ hours with me even though he had a cold.



Well, I don’t know about you, but I’m off to exercise my right to read a banned book. Hmm. I’ve got one of Chris Crutcher’s right here.


Happy reading/registering,

Donna

Just checked out that scary book comment in the Chronicle. You're in exalted company, friend.

Great to see you at the writer's group this afternoon, adding to the exalted company all around.
