I've returned from the second annual Bar Harbor Kids Book Festival, organized by charming and hilarious Carrie Jones. Huzzah!
There was a whole passel of writers, volunteers, kids and grown-ups. There's me looming in the back. And there's my amazing agent, Ammi-Joan Paquette, in front with the bombass writer scarf.
Also, there were *swag bags*! IT CAN'T BE TRUE. Yes. It is. Mine came with a perfect, tiny alpaca.
He or she does not yet have a name.
