3. Writer

Back in the city, I was promoting the Spell Book of Listen Taylor. I met teachers, librarians, booksellers, publishers and writers, and you know, I think I liked them all.
Especially, I liked hangin’ with some fantastic friends, including Arthur Levine, Jill Grinberg and Rachel Cohn. Such wonderful people.
And Rachel, the author of Cupcakes, gave Charlie and me cupcakes.
Anyway, one night I was walking to dinner with a group of children’s book writers and publishers. They were talking about the theatre strike in New York. This one writer I was walking alongside, declared, with passion: “I fully support that strike.”
“What are the issues?” I asked him, and he said that he didn’t have a clue.
