Up Next: Tucson Festival of Books!

March 12-13, 2016

I’m heading to Arizona for the Tucson Festival of Books this weekend, and I’m excited to meet many of the writers, readers, and volunteers involved with the event. I’m speaking on a couple of panels with Margaret Peterson Haddix, Rae Carson, Zac Brewer, Carol Goodman, and Sara Raasch, which promises to be very fun, and I’m also hoping to connect up with my friend Cammie McGovern, whom I know from our Brookline days.

The only snag so far is my flight has been cancelled, but I’m booked on a later one for tonight.  My fingers are crossed that it takes off as scheduled.


Fictional Doli, AZ

I have a special fondness for Arizona. Rosie, my main character in the Vault of Dreamers series, is from fictional Doli, Arizona, where she grew up in a boxcar community in the desert.  When I was driving through the state recently, I saw a train much like the one I imagined, and it warmed my soul.
