Thank you Kentucky! Next up: World Book Night kick-off in Seattle

Kentucky was amazing. Despite the Wildcats losing to UCONN the folks in the Bluegrass State were in high spirits, especially the students, who turned out in droves (okay, in busses, but you know what I mean). We even went full-tilt selfie a few times which was too much fun. Thanks Carla!

Speaking of fun, this image of yours truly speaking in a classroom was just dyyyyyying to be photoshopped. Dying, I tell you. A blank screen is like a blank canvas. It needs some attention.

Next up: World Book Night in Seattle. There's a kick-off event at Elliott Bay Book Company where I'll be teaming up with the amazing Maria Semple who wrote Where'd You Go, Bernadette?

See. You. There.

Oh! I missed this talk in Seattle by a day! Can you tell me if there has been a movie made of "Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet"? Someone sent me a trailer for the movie back in 2010 but can't find the movie!

I have loved this book since I read it years ago. My father grew up right there across the street from the Panama hotel in the back of Joe's Antiques. His best friend Eddy's family ran the bathhouse under the Panama Hotel. I would love to see the movie.

Hi Jen!

The trailers are all student-made. Class project. Not movie, yet.

And I'm sorry you missed the talk. I'll be on Whidbey Island the next day. :)
