Weekly Update

Whew, this has been one action-packed week. It kicked off last Friday night with Tom and I escorting William Kent Krueger and Debbi Michiko Florence, a children’s author, to the spirited keynote presentation of the Morristown Festival of Books, which was given by John Kerry, who was interviewed by Ann Curry. In a moment of pure humor, as we went to pick them up, I was in the lobby talking to Debbi, who I had not met before, but tracked down after a few looks at her author photo. My husband was waiting outside in the car while we waited for Kent in the lobby.
