Jay Goes Walkabout
So I’m in my library, minding my own business, and who should walk through the door but none other than newly minted fresh-as-a-daisy YA author Jay Asher! Such a nice fellow. I don’t usually note the nice guests to my library on my blog, but Jay has presented a fabulous encapsulation of the 4 Days & 4 Nights spent traipsing about the Big Apple.
There a nice little picture of Jay and myself in there. What he fails to mention is that I was unable to give him a proper tour while he was there. A class of sixty-some sixth graders literally entered the room ten seconds after I shook his hand and I had to conduct a Welcome to the Library presentation for them. Sweet feller that he is, he gave me a lovely Disco Mermaids mug all the same.
