Two receptions this evening brought readings from Trudy Krisher (FALLOUT, see earlier blog) and Ed Sullivan who has a new book on the Atom Bomb coming out in early 2007. Then, on to the ALAN reception with luminaries like Gail Giles (check out her blog where she recounts her tumble from a Segway), Ed Bloor, Chris Curtis, Julie Ann Peters, Cynthia Leitich Smith, Greg Leitich Smith, and publishers like the McDreamy Angus McKillick and the lovely Victoria Stapleton.
Dinner with Random House was yummy. Christopher Paul Curtis and I shared our love of capers. Elise Broach and Tammy Pierce railed against AR and lexiles with great encouragement from me, of course.
Now we are back "home" and it is sleeting outside. ALAN begins bright and early tomorrow at 8 am.
