Carpe Librum. Seize the book. What a great name for a bookstore.
Thanks to Martha for hosting and promoting (everyone loved the lemonade and snacks), and for the recommendation to see Emery’s 5 & 10, which we did — another must see! You can find them on facebook and their site will be going live any day now.
Thanks to Lynn and Deborah and McKenzie and Annie (will email photos soon!) and others who came. I so enjoyed talking about schools and libraries and books and local news and what it’s like to be in school today. Great to see you all!
I’m sad that my trip is officially over (although I’ll be at a local signing at Over the Moon in Crozet, VA at 7 pm this Saturday, Aug. 28th). One regret … somehow, I went through Tennessee (and Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, and North Carolina) without ever eating barbecue. But I’m rectifying that right now. Carpe crock pot!
