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!)
Book club members have been some of my most enthusiastic and careful readers. I’m thrilled to share my work with you, answer your questions and tell you some of the stories behind the stories. This is our spot, just for us. Here, we can chat: If I’m nearby, I’ll come and visit your club. Otherwise, we can Skype, talk over the phone or email. Sometimes, I’ll send surprises or hold contests.
