Hello Mr. Ball!I am so jealous of you in New York, and meeting wonderful authors, too! I have been reading. I am on my fifth OBOB book and I have even read an ADULT book! I am into The Red Umbrella at the moment which takes place in Castro's Cuba. The two children in the family are about to go to the United States to get away from the loss of political freedom. It is getting pretty exciting!Have a good time and bring back lots to teach us.Ms. Harding
So cool that you got to meet a Pura Belpre Award winner! Can't wait to see the book!
