Meeting Educators & Kids

Rich and I had the chance to speak with educators at the Barnes & Noble in Manchester, New Hampshire and we really enjoyed meeting local high school and elementary school librarians and teachers. We had tea and cakes and talked about our novels, then chatted to some of the attendees after.

What was really special though, was heading to the Barnes and Noble in Nashua right after and signing books there. The events co-ordinator timed our visit perfectly. Students from a nearby Catholic school were just finishing their poetry readings (lots of great odes to their teachers!)so we had a captive audience.

We sold out of our books and got to chat with little Jack (pictured below with Rich),

and lots of other kids who were looking for summer reads.

The store was really busy and though it's quite huge, still has the feel of a local bookstore, with helpful and enthusiastic staff who know about books.
