Which you'd never guess now, judging from how often we "talk" via Twitter, usually several times a day. So when Hillary mentioned that her son's school would be hosting a visit from children's author and illustrator Floyd Cooper, I offered her a guest post here - since I've been known to write a thing or two about books on occasion.
You can find my friend Hillary at her personal blog called my scraps ... a place of ideas, opinions and memories (she is an awesome scrapbooker!), on Twitter, and blogging as Scrappin' Mom on MomSpace. And right here, as she tells us about their school's visit with author/illustrator Floyd Cooper. Please welcome my friend Hillary and enjoy her guest post.
Our elementary school hosts an author/illustrator visit each year. I have had the pleasure of chairing the committee that coordinates this event for the past 4 years.
