Watch the, uh, hands; they tell the story
ALA's Public Library Association is convening this week in Boston, and last night I had the pleasure of attending a dinner for Jarrett Krosoczka and Jon Scieszka (where were the pierogies?). A good time was had by all as we enjoyed each other's company and Jon's stories--particularly hilarious was an anecdote he shared from an autograph session yesterday morning, where a sixty-ish woman, while having Jon sign her book, told him about the time back in her nudist colony when her nudist husband entertained the folks with his rendition of Jon's True Story of the Three Little Pigs by A. Wolf. In sign language.
