Another Author Encounter!

Our favorite indy bookstore, The Voracious Reader, had another last minute author guest at their store. Being the rabid book fans that we are, we dropped everything and headed over to meet Bruce Coville, author of The Magic Shop Book series and The Unicorn Chronicles. We're also big fans of his audio book line, Full Cast Audio. If you haven't heard any of these audio books, you must treat yourself. They do an excellent job of bringing books to life.

Meeting Mr. Coville was a great thrill for us. As it happened, the last minute notice coupled with a gorgeous day meant that not many came to this event. That gave us a rare opportunity to spend some time chatting with this author, and we took full advantage of the chance. I'm hoping he enjoyed his time with us as much as we did with him. I know Marina and Chase won't forget it! Chase was a bit star-struck and quieter than usual, but Marina enjoyed discussing everything from books to travel to our quirky, crazy life. Mr. Coville, if you're listening, you made our day!

That is SO cool! I bet he enjoyed chatting with y'all as much as you enjoyed talking to him.

How wonderful! I second Stephanie, he must have loved talking with you and your gang every bit as much as you enjoyed it.

We own all his Shakespeare retellings for children. Those are very well done! What a fun opportunity for you.
