Thank you, Jon Scieszka!

 Today ends the reign of this year’s National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature, Jon Scieszka. What a great advocate for reading and the honest enjoyment of story! I’m looking forward to the announcement of the next Ambassador. I wonder who it will be?

Also, I must thank Jon for attending my very first book signing for ME WITH YOU this past summer at the Magic Tree Bookstore in Oak Park, IL. He was, of course, there to read his own work but he, along with authors Richard Peck, Jerry Pinkney, Ingrid Law and Gennifer Choldenko, drew a crowd, which allowed me to feel like my first book signing was a rip-roaring success. And they all put me at ease. Here’s a pic of me reading, just a short time before Jon Scieszka, National Ambassador, took the stage. 🙂

    Thanks for being part of this great digital send-off, Kristy.

    That Magic Tree House event was a lot of fun . . . even if we did have to do it with a karaoke machine.
