Ms. Links-a-Lot

Yesterday I had a blast visiting the MOPS group of University Presbyterian Church to give a talk on "Raising Book Lovers." If you've got munchkins at home and want a few book ideas, you can listen to the talk on their blog. Hmmm...don't see the handout of favorite kid reads attached, but send me a message and I can email it to you. During the discussion time I got a great new recommendation from one of the mentor moms--a Carol Ryrie Brink (think Caddie Woodlawn) book I'd never heard of but which my oldest would love, about two girls being shipwrecked on an island where they had to take care of lots of babies. Awesome!


In other news, I can't seem to get a hold of the original contact I had for the Seattle University Book Festival coming up in March, but a new gal sent me this "publicity" dealie, so I guess it's still a go!
If you can't read the blurb, you're not missing much, because there was a second paragraph to what I sent them that didn't make it onto the flyer. Oh, well. Basically I'll be talking on "Prayer and Prejudice: the Validity of Faith in Jane Austen." The book festival is free--even including Michael Chabon--but you have to get advance tickets.

And finally, just to prove that high-brow (Austen) meets middle-brow (children's literature) meets low-brow (see below) in a unibrow on this blog, here's a link to the the church announcement video that our very creative Joanna put together a couple weeks ago. Enjoy!
