Yay, English Festival was one of the best days ever. I really enjoyed it and Joan Bauer’s speech was excellent. She was funny and crazy. I actually got to talk to her for a little while after her speech. She told me that I have to write about what I know. She autographed my copy of Thwonk and took a picture with me. She also talked about her new book Peeled, about a corupt newspaper that instills fear in a small community. It sounded really good, I have to buy it the next time I’m at the book store.
I also had some other classes during the day. I heard a speech by Chris Crutcher, king of censorship and author of The Sledding Hill and Whale Talk. I made a new friend named Eliza, she and I had the same class schedule so we walked to all our class together.
