Adventures in Alberta


That's what I like to see

While in Alberta for Children’s Book Week, I visited ten schools, three libraries and any number of book stores. I talked to close to a thousand kids between the ages of ten and eighteen. I learned about pump jacks and stubble and why everybody in Alberta has a cracked windshield.

And I had a very, very good time.

I want to thank all the teachers, librarians, students and book-sellers who made me so welcome.

Would I go back again? As they say in Alberta – “You betcha!”
