On Tuesday, July 2nd, I had the great honor of meeting a large number of delightful American Girl fans at the  Chicago American Girl Place store.

This shows some of the wonderful people I was able to meet; that's me 
on the far right sitting with a fan, chatting and signing a book for her.
It was fun to talk with so many excited young readers (including some  budding writers) and their parents. Their enthusiasm for Caroline was a joy!

My thanks to the Chicago store staff, who went out of their way to make me feel welcome. I appreciate all that you do every day connecting young readers with books!
Most of all, my sincere thanks to all the great girls who came out to see me at the store.

I wrote Caroline's stories for you.
