When You're Doing Five Events with Three Authors, They Are Bound to Eventually Collide--Diesen Meets Perry.
It all came together too, because Ms. Diesen was, author of The Pout-Pout Fish Goes to School, was one of our attendees at Michael Perry's event for The Scavengers. Mr. Perry noted that Ms. Diesen and Mr. Hanna's books were very popular read-aloud titles at bedtime, while Ms. Diesen returned the favor by getting a copy of Mr. Perry's newest book.
A great day all around, though I admit that we can't pull off something like this too often. We had the perfect amount of time between events, thanks to Jannis's scheduling. And you've probably figured out that Amie also worked a very long day to make this work. So thanks to everyone who made this happen--the booksellers, the schools, the publishers, the authors, and the audience!
