So I was wandering around Alice Pope's (my editor at CWIM for the past ten years -- has it really been that long?) blog tonight and found this FANTASTIC event scheduled in the New England States on Valentine's Day 2009. Authors volunteer to spend quality time with kids at indie bookstores in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island and Vermont. Man, it makes me wish I lived in New England. In fact, I'm checking my calendar. CRYPTIDS was on the Maine State Reading Award list last year. Maybe I could be wicked cool for a day? If you live back east, think about sharing a little time. I'm gonna see about doing it out here.
