Savannah Children’s Book Festival

Savannah Children’s Book Festival

Amazing how friends appear out of nowhere and create magic! My fiftieth high school class reunion was recently. So excited, I dug out old friends from my memory. I was surprised that I could name almost every classmate—how many can do that? At age 68?

I wrote emails and made phone calls cajoling the lot that fifty years was a milestone–we might not even recognize each other in another year. We had a great event and I reconnected with special friends.

Two of those have made connections for me to be interviewed on News Radio 1290 WTKS with Bill Edwards as the host. Imagine me talking for an hour! After that my high school buddy will whisk me over to WTOC (channel 11) for “Mid-Morning Live” with Jody Chapin for another interview.

The weekend promises to be a fantastic one. I will be signing books and selling Bettina the Bold at the Savannah Children’s Book Festival. I can’t wait for the Low Country Boil on Friday night. All this because I have two great high school friends to make the events run smoothly. If you are in Savannah on Friday, November 18th, tune in or better yet come meet me at the Forsyth Park in front of the Bull Street Library. I will be the one with the red table cover and lots of butterfly friends.
