They also had matching chef’s hat for my daughter and me!

A shout-out to Bunkie Wilson, librarian extraordinaire, and the book club of the Maranacook High School, who gave me one of the best author visits I’ve had. Enthusiastic prep, intelligent questions, and one of the loveliest gifts a visiting author ever got–a recipe box (they discovered from my online bio that I like to cook) covered with favorite quotes from my novels. (Mercy, of course, plus The Manny, The Secret of the Roseand The Dragon’s Son.) It was so touching to discover, in such detail, exactly what had captured the attention of my readers. Some were my favorites too–some I had completely forgotten writing! But all were great to read. It will have an honored place in my kitchen.
