Updates on Some Recent Reading
Gregor NewsI just learned that Suzanne Collins, who wrote Gregor the Overlander and Gregor and the Prophecy of Bane, which I was just raving about here recently, is going to be at the Connecticut Children's Book Fair in November. I want to go hear her speak, but I'm wondering if I should. People who are more successful than I am for writing books that I actually like and admire often leave me feeling very down on myself. If I really, really tried, I could write better and more popular books, right? It's all my own fault?
Nonetheless, I have penciled the fair dates on my calendar
