…ON SATURDAY NIGHT.
Late again! It has been an eventful, productive day, but I failed to post one of my much anticipated things in a long while.
This past spring, one of my favorite children’s authors paid me a visit at my home in Alvin. She brought her fabulous kids and we had a lovely visit. She even stopped and brought lunch–now, that’s the kind of company to have!
Alda P. Dobbs wrote the Bluebonnet nominated The Barefoot Dreams of Petra Luna, a wonderful tale of a Mexican ten-year-old, caught up in the Mexican Revolution. Her adventures are based on stories Alda’s great grandmother told her when she was young.( Use the search box to find my review of this excellent book.) In September, 2022, Alda Dobbs will publish the sequel, The Other Side of the River. She signed a copy of the book for me, and I greedily read it in one weekend.
I am always happy to tell people that I have a friend who is a well-known, well-respected children’s author, but even happier when she and her lovely kids come to see me. Soon I will review On The Other Side of the River, so you can pre-order and plan the time for a pleasant weekend of fantastic reading.
