That’s me talking to 2000 screaming fans of books and reading! An author’s dream!
Hello from Toronto again, but this time from a fantastical place where authors are rocks stars and kids love reading with a frenzied passion and line ups for autographs from said author/rock stars snake around buildings. Yesterday was the Forest of Reading’s final climax: the ceremony for the Silver Birch Award in three categories, with my book, Nobody’s Dog, up for the middle grade (age 8-12) category (so excited for Robin Stevenson, who won for Record Breaker.) It’s been such a thrill to be part of this amazing program, one that celebrates readers and writers and libraries, and treats reading books as the adventure it should be.
Eeeeeeek!!! So exciting!!! Ria we are so proud of you!!!!
Wow! So exciting. Can only imagine the rush and thrill of so much positive feedback for a job that is ordinarily so solitary. Very proud of you. Well done! x x x
Wowza! That’s a lot of people. So exciting and fun! Congratulations again!
I am so proud of you. You are just amazing. I’m so proud to be able to say that you are my friend!
