1. A long time ago, I was in an all-girl band called Sandwich. We only played one song, also called Sandwich.
Sandwich, at a Halloween party, circra 1998. We’re sitting because we can’t play standing up.
2. Once, I invented a sandwich. The ingredients were: Fluff, Nutella, and sliced bananas on white bread. I called it the “HW Yummy” (patent pending).
3. Last night, I had the honor of doing a reading/book-signing at the lovely Sandwich Public Library with my fellow road-trip author, Kirsten-Paige Madonia (FINGERPRINTS OF YOU). The event was sponsored by Titcomb’s Bookshop.
We started off our night with an interview for a local cable access show, hosted by Kathy & her #1 YA reader, Emma, a high school senior.
We’ll be back, after this message from our sponsor.
Then we moved downstairs for the reading & book discussion. Boy, were we surprised to see how much work Kathy put into our event. The room was decorate with maps and travel guides, and she even had a bevy of tasty road-trip themed snacks!
Afterwards, we chatted with fellow YA author Scott Blagden, author of Dear Life, You Suck (Harcourt, March ’13) and signed some books. Of course, we ended the night with some pictures in the Pea Pod photo-booth.
Kids, do not try this at home.
Vicky & Kathy hit the road!
HUGE thanks to Kathy Johnson of the Sandwich Library and Vicky Uminowicz for making our night so special. It really means a lot to know there are such devoted booksellers & librarians out there willing to go the extra mile to help out a couple of debut authors. And kudos to the amazing Emma for being so darn literate & cool.
If you’re in the Dedham, MA area tonight, it’s you last chance to catch our Road Trip Books Hit the Road Tour at the Blue Bunny Bookstore at 6:30pm. Hope to see you there!
