The Salt Lake City Public Library event last Wednesday was such a delight. Many thanks to all who came, and HUGE thanks to Jordan Triptow and her team of librarians, who put on a fantastic event. They had set up stations where you could do things like go on a scavenger hunt through the library, make MATCHED buttons, put together a tablet container with three tablets inside, and eat pie (just like Grandfather!). I am really honored that they invited me to come to the library and speak to their patrons. It was especially fun for me because I got to give out those ARCs of CROSSED and also talk about CROSSED for the first time…and also see some family I haven’t seen in a while!
left to right: husband, sister (Hope), brother (Nic), cousin-in-law (Kylie), cute Brooke who won CROSSED but who is not a member of my family, I swear!, me, cousin (Michelle), and cousin (Stephanie)
My New Mexico cousins were in town and my brother and sister came down from Logan too. What a nice family I have! It was so fun to get to talk with them. I wish they lived closer!
And then it was back to work (me) and back to school (kids) and I have been pretty much running around ever since. To be honest, this summer has been so wild that I think once we get into the school groove things will feel more relaxed than they have over the past few months. Then again, maybe not. I always think that and then things get progressively crazier. I think that’s just what life is like, and I know it’s like that for most of us.
Which is why I want to say, to all those who take the time to read the books, the blog, come to events, etc…THANK YOU. I know you are busy. I know you have many other things you could be doing, reading, seeing.
Happy New School Year to all!
P.S. I responded to all the comments on the last post. Thanks so much for your thoughts!
