Well, it was a fine fine Fall day in Wellesley, MA made even better by a visit from world famous author Shannon Hale. What a delight to meet her and hear her speak. She is as down to earth as I'd hoped she'd be (after all she did go to grad school at the U of M - Missoula has a way of bringing out the normalcy in people - either that or driving them over the edge... ). Anywho, a friend and I went to the Wellesley Free Library to see Shannon Hale in support of the Wellesley Booksmith (a fantastic independent bookseller - Support your Local Bookstore!!!!!!). We were lucky enough to get our books signed and to get our pictures taken with her (yes, she is petting our hair - don't worry we gave her permission). Thanks Shannon for coming to Wellesley and for writing such wonderful stories! Bless your heart and the hands you type with.
