My writers' group celebrates!

Here's my writers' group (which started TWENTY YEARS AGO) celebrating Brian Lies's amazing new picture book, Bats at the Ballgame. Just WAIT until you see it!

Brian gave us all Bats at the Ballgame baseball caps and a set of adorable "bat cards."

Oh, man, now that I know he's in your writer's group, I have to stop hating Brian because his book beat out the Bobbies by one vote for the Kansas Young Reader's Choice Award!

Next time you see Brian, please tell him that I always start the year in Delhi by reading BATS AT THE BEACH to our third graders, followed by BATS IN THE LIBRARY in week two. I'm looking forward to seeing BATS AT THE BALLGAME.

Sounds like a really cute book. Thanks for sharing the pictures of your writing group.
