South Carolina, Here I Come!

Tomorrow morning, bright and early, I hop on a plane to Greenville, South Carolina, for the SC Association of School Librarians conference. There, I'll meet up with my partner in literary crime, Mary Nethery, and in one of our rare joint appearances we'll meet with the librarian attendees and then, gratefully, accept the South Carolina Book award for Two Bobbies.

Mary and I felt, from the moment we heard the story about these two buddies who survived Hurricane Katrina by lending one another a paw, that this was something special. And we continue to be amazed at how those two little creatures keep touching hearts, year after year.

Sometimes, I have to pinch myself: how could I get so lucky to tell this amazing story of two good friends with my good friend?

Life is good.


  1. I can't believe you're crossing the continent AGAIN! Y'all have a good time! :) e

  2. That's where I'm from! I'm so jealous.

  3. Barbara, I have room for you in my suitcase!
