Becky Anderson, the co-owner of my FAVORITE independent bookshop, appeared on Windy City Live. My school library program would not be as strong as it is today if Anderson's Bookshop did not place authors and illustrators in local schools. Without this connection, my students would not have learned with Harry Bliss, Pseudonymous Bosch, Peter Brown, Sharon Creech, Kate DiCamillo, Dan Gutman, Andy Griffiths, Kevin Henkes, Tad Hills, Jennifer Holm, Matthew Holm, Jarrett J. Krosoczka, Loren Long, Marianne Malone, Kate Messner, Ridley Pearson, Richard Peck, Linda Urban, and David Wiesner. Thank you, Becky!
Are you going to visit Anderson's Bookshop the next time you're near Naperville, Illinois? I surely hope so!
