I'm so excited!   :star2  The Twelve Days of Christmas in Kentucky has been selected by the Kentucky Humanities Council to represent Kentucky in the Pavilion of States at the National Book Festival in Washington on September 2nd. Each state chooses just one book for this honor.

Jody, the kids on the cover of my book will be waving to your Prudence at the event.  :hi5

Are there any other Blueboarders whose books will be there?

Ev, I'm still debating. Wish the flights weren't so much, or that I had bookstore/library visits to compensate on that end.
