I'm so excited to be going to the ALA. The ASPCA has invited me, along with all the other winners of a 2007 Henry Bergh Children's Book Awards for Excellence in Humane Literature. I'll be there representing "Old Mother Bear". Anyway, I went to the ALA's website to see who's speaking at the conference and found this cute little graphic in the process. I also found out Dianne Carroll will be the closing speaker. Too bad I'll be on a plane home when she steps up to the podium. I would have loved to have heard her, I had a "Julia" doll when I was about 7, the best Barbie ever!

"Seeds of anemone from far away"

That's one of the last lines in Old Mother Bear and I was reminded of it recently, on a visit to Leeds Castle in England. Behind me in this picture is an anemone meadow. I recognized it instantly from my imagination. Husband did as well, and patiently worked around the tourists to create my new author photo.
