It pays to know people in high places

I'm so excited I have to brag!

Columbus Children’s Theatre will be doing a stage adaptation of Stephanie Tolan’s Newbery Honor novel Surviving the Applewhites. The play doesn't run until October, but next month they are holding a reading to get suggestions from the local theater community. Luckily I happen to be very good friends with two fine actors who have worked with CATCO and they have invited me to come along. Not only will Stephanie Tolan herself be there, but so will the person who helped her with the adaptation . . . Katherine Paterson! How can I wait a whole month?

That's very exciting. You should wear a black turtleneck. Theater people on TV always wear black turtlenecks.
