Little Rock Rocks
Had a great time in Little Rock at the Arkansas Reading Association Fall Conference on Friday. Met lots of nice teachers and librarians, signed probably a hundred books, and even got to do a little sightseeing at the Clinton presidential library and the Old Statehouse museum. The hotel I stayed at had a beautiful view of the Arkansas River, and I walked along a piece of the 15 (18?) mile trail that stretches along its banks. I love speaking at state conferences!
