When Audrey Met Alice by Rebecca Behrens

Happy Sunday, loyal reader! I'm kicking off the third week of summer break with author Rebecca Behrens. We chatted about When Audrey Met Alice, President Roosevelt, school libraries, reading, and The Westing Game. I wrote the words in red, and she wrote the words in black. Many thanks, Rebecca! 

 
One thing you should know about Audrey Rhodes is that even though living in the White House is busy and exciting, sometimes being in the spotlight feels lonely.

President Roosevelt told a friend he could do only one of two things: be President of the United States, or control his spirited daughter Alice.

First Daughters are truly extraordinary—“ordinary” girls who live in an amazing historic place!

As a production editor I love the different physical details that make up each book, such as deckle-edge paper (when the edge of the paper is feathered instead of cut straight), glittery or glossy covers, and embossed cases.

School libraries are the closest thing we have to time-travel portals.

Reading is a great way to learn about yourself and about others—it fosters understanding in so many ways.
Mr. Schu, you should have asked me which character I would want to have as a pen pal, and I would’ve said Turtle Wexler from The Westing Game!
