meeting Katherine Holabird

I have been a fan of Katharine Holabird, the author of the Angelina Ballerina, since I received her first book as a gift when I was 5. Ever since then I have been hooked on the little dancing mouse. My mom still buys me every new book that comes out and we enjoy reading them together. This weekend I had the opportunity to meet Ms. Katharine in person at the Festival of Books. James and I got there 1.5 hours early just to make sure they wouldn't change the schedule on us at the last second. I had her sign 6 of my first edition books while James was my press photographer. It was a day I will never forget.

Aww- I wish we would have run into you! We never made it over to the Children's Books section, though we did check out the illustation gallery. Amazing stuff! So glad you finally met her.
