Travels with Pacy: Washington, D.C.

September 25, 2013

Pocket Pacy and Grace Lin!







I had the very exciting opportunity to spend last Friday with Grace Lin! Yes, Grace Lin! She graciously did a special school visit for An Open Book  with a group of very appreciative students. I brought our Pocket Pacy along and towards the end of the visit pulled her out to take a group shot with Grace and the students. It was a fun little reunion. Grace noticed Pacy's faded features (that's what happens when you travel the world!), whipped out her fine tipped Sharpie, and gave Pacy a little make-over. You can see more pics here from her fabulous school visit and below are a couple of pics of the newly spruced up Pocket Pacy at the National Book Festival. A huge thank you to Grace and her family for making last Friday such a memorable day!

How fun is that! I read this book last winter! Now, I need to go back and get Dumpling Days. You guys sure lead the life and always have fun opportunities to meet authors. I don't think my children have ever met and author. When I was in elementary, we had the opportunity to talk to a author via telephone, but never meet one face to face.

That is great. Grace is coming to Jax next week and we will have an opportunity to meet her too. Can't wait.
