All in all, it was a great time!
Here are some of my favorite quotes from a few of the keynote speakers:
- "Readers are not trends, they are readers." Libba Bray
- "If you need to write it, there's someone out there who needs to read it." Donna Jo Napoli
- "Reading became breathing for me." Gary Paulsen, in talking about his horrific childhood.
- "What I'm interested in is the difference between what the character's saying and what the character is thinking." Judy Blume
