First, I was so excited to finally meet in person Michelle Moore, publicist at Shadow Mountain. I've worked with her on tours in the past and she is just lovely. Shadow Mountain has some great titles being released and we chatted about our work in the industry. So insightful to talk to publicists!

Next, I met Raina Telgemeier. My daughter and I loved her book Smile. And now Raina's upcoming graphic novel is Sisters. My daughter was thrilled to get a signed copy and she's already zipped through it. Look for her review in August. If you've never picked up Raina's books, do so because not only are her stories good but her illustrations are so full of life and emotions. Great for middle graders and teens!
