One of the pleasures of authorship is getting to know so many fantastic librarians across the country.
One of the pleasures of life in our era is that you can get to know someone in so many new and wonderful ways.
This morning I woke up to a message telling me that Pam Brown Margolis, alias The Unconventional Librarian (a Philadelphia reader, librarian, and reviewer), just compared The Secrets of Mary Bowser to Alex Haley's Roots. Although I was too young to read Roots when it was first published, the television series had a profound effect on me, as it did on millions of people. So Pam's review pretty much rocked my universe.
One more reason to feel ever indebted to librarians. As if I needed another!
