    >I did the same trip along with Jane Dyer and Diane DeGroat in 2005, invited by Bandana Sen, the librarian at the time, (talent and poise must not have been the main criteria back then, or else Jane and Diane had enough for the 3 of us) and it was every bit as wonderful as Linda describes. Definitely a high point in my life as a childrens book writer.
