I was in Chicago for HEY, KIDDO book tour. And you damn well better believe I was wearing my National Book Awards Finalist medal!
That thing where you are up late at the National Book Award Gala in NYC but you have a previously scheduled visit to schools and libraries in Chicago, so you wake up super early and fly out there, you get to the school, set up & there’s a fire alarm. And it’s snowing.
Thank you, firefighters!! 🔥
