I had a lovely weekend of general fall-ness. On Saturday morning, I went to the Vancouver Children’s Literature Roundtable’s annual breakfast. It was an illustrator-author breakfast, with presentations by Barbara Reid and Jo Ellen Bogart. There’s really nothing more inspiring than a morning spent listening to two accomplished artists.
It was a head-swelling morning, too. 50 Burning Questions is shortlisted for the Roundtable’s Information Book Award, and a nice man named Rob did a wonderful presentation about the book. I wish I’d recorded the whole thing for future marketing!
To top off the Saturday festivities, my family headed over to the Apple Festival. I’ve always wanted to go, but this was our first trip. It lived up to all expectations… some apple pie, apple cider, and apple popcorn later, we waddled back to the shuttle bus.
Now all I have to do is figure out what to make with the two bags of apples and bag of pears which somehow made their way home with me. Suggestions?
