California Love

Greetings from the Liesl & Po tour, Days 1-3!

So far this week, I have learned several invaluable life lessons:

1--Children are adorable. Also, children in California are better-mannered than children in New York!

2--Ackee is a delicious kind of Jamaican vegetable that grows in a pod, and very much resembles scrambled eggs in looks and texture, although not in taste.

3--The Hotel Palomar in Los Angeles makes delicious homemade pickles.

4--I am not a morning person.

Okay, so, one of these things I already knew, and two of them are food related, but DON'T JUDGE ME! So far, I'm having a great time on tour: at the B & N in Huntington Beach, CA, I got to see the west coast side of my family, which was very special; plus, I got to leave a note for my best friend Elizabeth Miles, who was visiting the store the following day with Becca Fitzpatrick and Moira Young!
In NoCal, I visited a school literally nestled in the midst of a magical, mystical redwood forest. It made me a) want to return to being a child just so I could attend and b) aspire to write an elvish fantasy set in just such a place. Kind of. More the former than the latter, actually.

Anyway, check out these assorted pics and keep on following my adventures on the road...

I wish you could have come to a city relatively near me. I live close to Little Rock and Jonesboro AR, and Memphis TN. It would be totally fab to get to meet you!!

Alas, I mixed up the two Oakland dates and I thought the bookstore that was 4 miles away was having you the day AFTER the one that was 21 miles away. I was willing to walk 4 miles, but 21 was too much for me. I even had my Facebook status about how I was about to see the writer who'd replaced Sarah Dessen as my favorite young adult author.

But that day I instead got to finish the 2005 BBC adaptation of Bleak House, which was amazing esp Gillian Anderson, and start reading the book. Hopefully your time in the Bay Area was just as good.
