A little last minute, but better late than never, right?
I had a great chat with Alison Cuddy over at WBEZ a couple of weeks ago. She's a great interviewer because she's funny and she knows her stuff. That ALWAYS makes for better conversation. Our interview is airing today on WBEZ during their World Affairs show at noon.
Hopefully, that will get you in the mood because tonight is our gala event for the Naperville READS! program. As the adult author pick this year, I've been visiting the area high schools and I've enjoyed getting to meet so many of the kids in our hometown. So if you're reading this now, Naperville high school kids, BRING YOUR PARENTS and come see me tonight at Wentz Concert Hall at 7 p.m. Tickets are free and available at Anderson's Books and the libraries in town. If you don't have a ticket, come anyway. Just tell them at the door that we're pals. They'll let you in. (And yes, I know there is snow scheduled for tonight. Pshaw. You can't let a little snow keep you home!)
