At ALA Annual!

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.

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.
