Barbara’s Bookstore Video

This fall, I was lucky enough to have dinner with booksellers and other children’s book advocates in Chicago. After dinner, a lovely woman named Rose set up a camera and asked me to give my very first Maybe a Mermaid interview! Here I am, talking about my book (and, yes, I’ll admit it, I was super nervous).

I had so much fun on World Read Aloud Day this year. Thanks to the magic of technology, I was able to visit six schools in TX, CT, MA, and ME. I read a chapter of Maybe a Mermaid, answered questions about writing, and spent some time recommending some of my favorite recent books. It was a blast. And the cherry on top? These amazing cards I received from students! Do you see those details? The Beemobile! Anthoni’s cabin! The Showboat! I may have read them all several times. 🙂
