Kaigler >Come on down

Next Tuesday through Friday I’ll be down at the University of Southern Mississippi’s Fay B. Kaigler Children’s Book Festival, delivering the Ezra Jack Keats Lecture on Thursday. Hope to see some of you there. I last spoke there in 1998 and have gone to the Guide to find some very interesting differences in what publishing looked like then and what it looks like now. Short version: boy wizard.
