This past weekend I went to a really fun Book Launch Party for my amazing grad school mentor (and dare I say, friend), Sheila O’Connor. Her newest book, Sparrow Road, is getting wonderful reviews and I can’t wait to curl up in a lawn chair and dig in. It’s geared for ages 9-12, so if you know someone that age find this book. Or if you believe in the power of imagination and creativity, find this book. Read it. Let me know what you think.
On a side note, the reading was at the Red Balloon Bookstore in St. Paul. I had never been there (shame on me) but it’s a delightful little children’s bookstore. And even the tornado sirens that went off during this reading couldn’t get us from enjoying it.
