Here's Tami Lewis Brown of From the Mixed-Up Files and yours truly. Ms. Brown was kind enough to sign a copy of Soar, Elinor to Picky Reader, who was dragged over to meet her. (I'm not supposed to talk to P.R. because I am her teacher, not her mother. Geez.)
And Ms. Brown was kind enough to tell my students that she knew who I was.
I love the Kidlitosphere. It's so cool to meet authors in completely random places. A review of Soar, Elinor will be posted when I regain some mental compacity that has been diminished by herding 8th graders in public places and saying repeatedly "To your right! Your other right! Observe American traffic laws!"
