Big thrill here! Alamance County, NC has chosen Blue for it's community read.
I got wind of this possibility in February but had my doubts because community-wide reading programs typically involve books written for adults.
Then, in April, I heard Blue had been chosen! But they also told me to keep it a secret until the official announcement in August.
You mean I can't tell anybody? For six months? I am not allowed to blog about this?
Well, okay then. Mums the word!
I pushed this golden nugget into the far recesses of my consciousness and only brought it out on occasion to admire. In the meantime I've worked on revisions to Blue's sequel.
In July, Margaret Blanchard, ALAMANCE READS Co-Chair treated me to lunch and filled me in on the planned activities. WOW - Movies, contests, exhibits, and a blackberry cobbler & ice cream party! All that and more for the whole family. I'm so psyched!
Well, I got so used to keeping this on the backburner, that even though I knew the announcement was forthcoming, I completely forgot to watch for it. Then last night a friend emailed me a link to this news story.
So now I can blabbler on about this all I want to. Listen up! More to come...
