>Just a short post from Wordfest. It's an absolutely wonderful festival. I was able to share the stage with Shane Peacock (buy his young Sherlock books now!) and Marty Chan (Get his books, too--very hilarious!!). They both were brilliant and if you ever get a chance, ask Shane about crows. He has lots of stories. Oh, and ask Marty about the time he dressed up in his mom's bathrobe to practice kung fu (he was a kid at the time). The second part of the festival is out in Banff and I'm enjoying just staring at the mountains and seeing a few authors (like Marie-Louise Gay). Ooops, better go. I'm off to a program that features Cecil Castellucci. I'm hoping she can teach me how to be hip.
