Meeting Ally Condie

Most of you know that MATCHED by Ally Condie is one of my favorite books.  At ALA yesterday, Ally was signing books.  Since I already own a personal copy and one in my school library Ally was kind enough to sign this promotional poster for me (made out to Stephanie, my daughter).  Ally is so sweet and so kind and we had a lovely conversation.  I told her she helps make my job so easy :)  My review for MATCHED can be read by clicking here.

Meeting Nikki Grimes

Today I attended the American Library Association's conference.  It is so exciting to meet authors, illustrators and publishers.  Pictured here is Nikki Grimes autographing a book for me.  Nikki Grimes is the author of many wonderful books including PLANET MIDDLE SCHOOL.  To read my review of PLANET MIDDLE SCHOOL click here.
