An open letter to the librarians of Texas

Dear Texas librarians,

Thank you for your wonderful hospitality last week at the Texas Library Association conference. It was my first TLA experience. What a pleasure it was to visit with you about Capstone and books in general! To know I was in the company of thousands of book lovers brought a simple joy and thrill that only fellow book lovers can appreciate.

I’m happy to hear that your students love Bloodlines, Jake Maddox, the Sports Illustrated Graphic Novels, and anything by Michael Dahl. And of course, it made me smile to know that the girls can’t get enough of Kylie Jean and Katie Woo. Lots of other book series came up, too, and it means a lot to know that you feel we understand kids and what they like.

My only TLA regret? That we didn’t have enough bags for each and every one of you. After all, everyone deserves to shout, “I’m bananas for reading!”

This book bag had a huge following at the 2012 TLA. Everyone was asking for one,
but sadly, we ran out in the first few minutes every day.
