I also finished reading Richard Peck's THE TEACHER'S FUNERAL. This man continues to produce some of the best books out there. His books run the gamut from the historical (like The Teacher's Funeral) to contemporary (like Are You in the House Alone?). His incredible talent for telling a story that sucks readers into the book reminds us all why he is such an important leader in the field year after year. He is actually the luncheon speaker tomorrow here at NCTE.
Off to meetings. Indy is muggy and warm--go figure!
