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!

This was a vast, magnificent auditorium, but whenever I’m with
people who love books, I’m at home.
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!
