Gary D. Schmidt, Okay for Now
Aside from gathering ideas for new reads this week, I also acquired a ticket to hear Stephen King speak in Dallas next month!! He's going to talk about his upcoming release 11/22/63.
I am so excited about this that I just can't stand it. Isn't this the literary equivalent of going to see The Beatles?
Lastly, did you see this literary movie news?
