I've been lucky enough to meet Rick Riordan many, many times.
One of these days I'll tell you the story of the first time I met him,
at a conference,
when he was desperately trying to give away copies of
a book I'd never heard of...The Lightning Thief.
Aaron Reynolds really knows his subject.
Jon Scieszka and Mac Barnett introduce the Bluebonnet nominees in style.
Dav Pilkey and Jarret Krosoczka show how everything looks better
Anne Lamott comes to Houston. Unforgettable.
I stumbled on this photoshoot of children's book winners
at the state capitol. Lucky me!
Kate DiCamillo tells how she became an author.
I was assigned to escort Jewel at the Texas Book Festival one year. She spoke about her children's book in the Texas Capitol. But it was when she sang that I saw her magic.
I'll never forget having children's author/illustrator Jon Klassen at my school,
just before he won the Caldecott.
Here are more authors I have met:
Row 1, l to r: Brian Selznick, Patricia Polacco, Lani Taylor
Row 2, l to r: Katherine Paterson, Tamora Pierce, Jacqueline Woodson
Row 3, l to r: Lois Lowry, Mo Willems, Cynthia Voight.
For a look at all the authors I've met, take a look at my Pinterest board: Authors I Have Met.
