Frisco Library!

How cute is this centerpiece for the Private Reception before my talk at the Frisco Library in Dallas, Texas!

What fun to sit and chat with people who love reading!

 

Such a beauty!  And I like her tag, too!

I do believe blonds have more fun!

No, I did not steal her necklace but I might have kind of thought about it. . .

No, I’m not short.  He’s tall!

This was a vast, magnificent auditorium, but whenever I’m with

people who love books, I’m at home.

More book people!

Thank you, North Richland Hills Library in Dallas, Texas!  Thanks for the amazing lunch and the wonderful turnout!  I had so much fun.  And thanks for the beautiful apron.  I’ll wear it when I make my ‘smores cookies!

Love meeting readers and signing Secrets in Summer!
