Simmons College Summer Institute
Saturday I got to spend the day immersed in children's literature at Simmons College's Children's Literature Summer Institute.
So much fun.
I got a chance to listen to and chat with lots of talented folks, including David Small, Jack Gantos, and my Freak Sister, (a little inside joke) the sweet, smart and talented Jo Knowles.
One highlight for me was finally meeting my friend, the uber-talented, smart, kind, friendly, lovely, author Helen Frost.
Here we are looking a little blurry. We are much sharper than this.
