We can thank Sarah Hale for saving Thanksgiving and Anderson's Bookshop for connecting readers with authors. Thanks to Anderson's I've met Henry Cole, Maryrose Wood, Mo Willems, Peter Brown, Sharon Creech, Dan Gutman, Doreen Cronin, Andrew Clements, Brian Selznick, and on and on.
This past weekend, Anderson's held its 9th Annual Children's Literature Breakfast. It is an opportunity to meet featured authors and dozens of local authors. Thank you, Anderson's Bookshop, for hosting events that inspire me--thereby inspiring my students.
