It's an exhilarating feeling to meet an author and to hear about his or her process, what inspires his or her books, or about their passion for books and reading. As a parent and teacher, I truly recommend looking for author book signings your kids or students can attend because it does bring a new perspective to books. Here are the authors I met this morning:
Me and Tim Green - author of Football Genius and others
Me and Mark Teague -
author and illustrator of Dear Mrs. La Rue: Letters From Obedience School and others
Me and Trent Reedy - author of Words In The Dust
Me and Kathryn Lansky - author of The Capture (Guardians of Ga'hoole, Book 1) and others
I'm still reeling from all the excitement of being with book friends and meeting some fantastic authors today. It makes me sad that I live close to Anderson's but too far away to go more often.
Have you read any of these authors' books? Do you have a favorite? What authors have you met or wish you could meet?
