Super time at two great conferences!

GranFran and I enjoyed two wonderful days with "book people" this week. The Alabama School Library Association's annual workshop was great! When I was a librarian, the conference was always a boost, and now, as an author in the Author Alcove, I found a new kind of fun connecting and reconnecting with fellow authors and librarian friends. And we had even more fun presenting at a breakout session about our books and giving a sample of our school visit presentations.
     Well, after all, you can't help but enjoy being around several hundred people who love books for kids!
                And also . . .


       We had another great day when we participated in the Southern Christian Writers Conference in Tuscaloosa - great speakers and workshops, and we enjoyed meeting fellow authors in the Authors Room. If you are interested in honing your writing skills and managing the business end of writing, you might want to check out this excellent conference that is organized as a ministry of love by three generations of the Sloan family. Next year will be their 25th anniversary!
We shared a table with fellow author  
Lawayne Childrey, and as it turns out, he
remembered Mother because he narrated a 
DVD about Alabama Rosies that 
Jeff State Community College 
produced about 12 years ago.
How cool is that!
