So I’m really excited, because I got to meet Laurie Halse Anderson (author of Speak, and several other novels) tonight! She signed a copy of her newest novel, and we chatted for a few minutes. She was really friendly and personable, and she spoke about her writing process and the inspiration for TIKOM. It was a great night, and now I’m going to read. :) If you live close to any of the places she’s going to on her tour, you should go!

Service animals have their own potty area on the gate side of security so their human companions don’t have to worry about getting their critter outside. Way to go Memphis Airport! #lhatour
