First session: Cheryl, who introduced me (and called for tech support!)
Second session: Pat, who was helping at the conference on her birthday. Happy birthday, Pat!
Friends made at the author signing session
at the luncheon, where Emily was introduced. In a competition for 4th - 6th graders to design a static cling to encourage reading, Emily's design won.
