On Tuesday, July 30th, I had the great honor of meeting a large number of delightful American Girl staff and fans at the Miami American Girl store.
Some of the wonderful staff at the Miami store, who provided a very warm welcome!
Meeting the store staff reminded me of how seriously the employees take their work. Each loves to empower girls, and takes great care to help connect young readers with just the right books. My thanks to the managers who made it possible for me to visit with everyone.
During the signing, I had fun talking with so many excited young readers (including some budding writers) and their parents. Their enthusiasm for Caroline was a joy!
One of my new friends surprised me with the delightful drawing of Caroline at right. I will treasure this lovely memento of my visit.
Thanks to the parents and grandparents involved, some of whom drove for hours to get their girls to the store. We also had guests from several states, and three foreign countries!
Most of all, my sincere thanks to all of the great girls who came to meet me. I wrote Caroline's stories for you.
