I just returned home from an inspiring and informative dinner with Newbery Medalist Patricia MacLachlan. (I vividly remember devouring Sarah, Plain and Tall when I was a shy fourth grader in Miss Burn's class.) She was in town to discuss her latest book, The Boxcar Children Beginning: The Aldens of Fair Meadow Farm. She captivated the entire table with her effervescent and charming personality. She's a hoot and an exceptional storyteller!
Colby Sharp and I read It's Like This, Cat for the Newbery Challenge.
I could not stop smiling during my first, second, and third reading of Have Fun, Molly Lou Melon. I know it will be impossible not to smile when I read it for a fourth, fifth, sixth seventh, eighth, ninth...you get the point. I'm currently working on interview questions for Patty Lovell.
