I had five wonderful people-and-book days back to back June 23-28.
First I flew to Orlando for my first-ever American Library Association Annual Conference and Exhibition. At the HarperCollins/Thomas Nelson booth I signed I AM and Say & Pray Bible.
I always love putting my books into someone’s hands. Extra special were the smiles and thank-yous from librarians so pleased to find Christian children’s books at the ALA!
And I discovered you can sign books wearing a dress and flip-flops when the cute shoes you planned to wear gave you blisters the night before.
My writing friend Glenys Nellist was there too, at the HarperCollins/Zonderkidz booth. She signed her newest books on Friday night, and stopped by to say hello on Saturday morning before flying home.
I walked the floor on Saturday afternoon and agreed to have my picture (??) drawn. What do you think?!
The Lord has people everywhere. This young woman, a sister in Christ, is a librarian at the Anaheim (California) Public Library, where I got my very first library card when I was 6!
Making God’s wonders known to the next generation–that’s what it’s all about!
