i just got back from the Tucson Festival of Books and thought i'd share some of the highlights.
my weekend started with a visit to St. John the Evangelist Catholic School, where i met some incredibly bright and inquisitive students.
do ignore my crazy facial expressions! ;)
then it was off to the festival, where i got to present a workshop with awesome author Tom Leveen!
here's me and Tom putting on our "serious author" faces at the signing afterward:
then Tom and i joined the AMAZING A.S. King for a panel, and i tried not to be fidgety sitting next to an author i admire so much.
...tried and failed, that is!
this is me fidgeting with the case for my glasses:
and fidgeting with my hands under the table:
but A.S. and Tom are way too much fun, and i didn't stay nervous for very long. i had an absolute blast talking to the group. can't wait to go back next year!
