Or close to it.
Though truthfully, I've never been to Pelahatchie, Mississippi, I can't wait to meet the librarians and talk to the kids next week.
My "small world" state story? One of the librarians is a granddaughter of my daddy's colleague.
She and I both worked, at different times, as interns for the State Library Commission.
Southerners are so connected to each other!
Y'all can't really come though. Sorry.
I won't be hanging out at Lemuria to sign books this time.
This is a trip to talk to students, teachers, share the story of my book.
(But I bet if you call Emily at the bookstore, she could arrange for me to leave a copy there for you.)
I'm thrilled to be headed home!
Home truly is where your story begins...
