Olsen fans in Creston

Fifteen hours is a long time to spend on the road even if you are with wonderful men like Tim and Fred. Great conversation. The girls at A.R.E.S. (above) were disappointed that Tim was too old and too taken but they thought he looked “very Vancouver” and that was exciting for Creston. The schools have filled the house with two or three classes of grades 5-7. I am having a good time telling stories and talking about books. The kids and teachers at Adam Robertson Elementary in Creston and Steeples Elementary in Cranbrook want to say “thanks” to the Book Prizes for sending an author to the Kootenays. On Monday I was able to visit Sono Nis’, my publisher, awesome location in Winlaw (just out of Nelson) for the first time—no wonder Diane loves the Slocan Valley.

I just wanted to pass on to you, how much the children at Tucelnuit Elementary enjoyed your visit.  Three girls came into the library after school to request your book and told me how much they liked you.  Later on two more children came in looking for your books.  So you definitely made an impression!  Thank you,too, for your presentation at the library.  Several of the ladies are hoping you will take the time to write about yourself.
