We enjoyed last Tuesday evening on the patio with the one and only Gail Carson Levine. She is on tour for the third installment in her Disney Fairies books; the new one is Fairies and the Quest for Neverland. There were lots of battered, well-loved copies of Ella Enchanted floating around and so many fans from ages 8 and up. More than one young woman called Gail her “writer crush” and we can see why. She’s smart, funny, curious and kind. She gave us a sneak peak at the picture book she is working on and it is darling; it’s called Betsy Red Hoodie and will be a companion to her earlier book, Betsy Who Cried Wolf.
For an interview with Gail just before her appearance hop on over to Emily’s Reading Room and take a look!
