Arkansas Literary Festival

On my first day at the Arkansas Literary Festival I had the privilege to address 9-12th grade students at Oak Grove High School in North Little Rock. I was impressed by their interest in writing and the sophistication of their questions. It is always heartening to meet with young people and come away with a feeling that our future is good hands. My thanks to the faculty and staff at Oak Grove and especially to my host, Library Media Specialist Lisa Polk.

Shortly, I'll heading to the author reception at the Arkansas Studies Institute. Tomorrow I will be presenting at the Main Library along with over seventy other others. Stay tuned for more news later.
