A Happy Way to End (Almost) 2017
It was a traveling sort of December, most recently to Ottawa for the Canadian premiére of the musical adaptation of The Man with the Violin. Very exciting to celebrate this book once again with Dusan Petricic (its illustrator who came all the way from Belgrade for the event), Rick Wilks of Annick Press, Joshua Bell (‘the man with the violin’ himself) — and with wonderful family and friends who made time at this crazy-busy time of year to join in on the fun. I wish I had a picture of my grandson chatting with Joshua Bell after the show, telling him “I saw you playing the violin!” Thanks to the NAC for making this happen!
As this year nears its end, I wish all my readers
the very best of the holiday season,
good health, and much happiness into the new year.
