Catching My Breath

March 5, 2013

All right! The snow is dumping on Chicago today. The screenings of the 2nd Annual 90-Second Newbery Film Festival are triumphantly finished. Thanks, public libraries of Chicago, Portland, and Tacoma, plus New York’s Symphony Space, for hosting them, and thanks to everyone who came!

Here are links for if you want to read recaps of how the film festival went in Chicago and New York City (updated! with photos of Jon Scieszka in a muscleman costume, arm-wrestling Kate DiCamillo, and video of Jon and me singing the 90-Second Newbery theme!).

Now that the film festival season is behind me for now, I can concentrate on actually writing books again. So I’ll be taking a short break from the blog, just a week or two. In the meantime, here are pictures of my daughter Lucy Momo (above, with best friend Ezra) and below a picture of my daughter Ingrid!
