Last night I met the well-known children's author Shannon Hale at The Red Balloon Bookshop where I work. She did a great talk and signed everyone's books, including mine! Then today, I had the fun opportunity of meeting Shannon at a school where she was doing a school visit. I brought the books that students ordered from The Red Balloon.
Here's a picture of Shannon Hale (on the right) with one of our hosts at the elementary school.
Her new book, REAL FRIENDS, is a graphic novel about growing up, friendships (good and bad), and life in elementary school. It's a great read!
