Last night I spoke to a book group that has been going for seventy years. SEVENTY YEARS. And one of the members has been attending it since the beginning, when she was a young married woman! What a fun group they were, too! All ages, getting together to talk about children's literature every month. Wonderful! Think of the friendships that have been formed, the books discussed, the laughter and tears. What a great thing these ladies have to look forward to every month! Next month they'll have a presentation on The Hero and the Crown, and the month after on Anne on Green Gables, two of my favorite books! And speaking of L. M. Montgomery (author of Anne), I just read her book The Blue Castle, which was wonderful, wonderful, wonderful!
And also wonderful are some exciting new items on the Meet Jessica page! I'll be signing in Logan next week, and some other fun places in the months to come.
