Last weekend I was lucky enough to be one of nine authors invited to take part in the first ever EpicFest, a "literary festival for kids of all ages" held at ImaginOn, an astonishing structure in downtown Charlotte, NC, which contains an enormous children's branch of the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library plus two beautifully appointed performance spaces for the Children's Theatre of Charlotte.
Here is the "book house" I saw at one branch of the library during my lunch break on Friday:
I came away from the festival thinking: I love being part of this world, the world of people who write books, read
books, teach about books, love books. I want to be part of it in every way, forever.
Guess I'd better start writing my next book soon...
