If you're around Cambridge this Friday, the Cambridge Public Library Children's Room invites you to an evening with Avi, celebrating the release of his new book Crispin: the End of Time. The program begins at 7:00 PM and will be held at Cambridge College, 1000 Mass Ave., room #152. Porter Square Books will have books available for sale and autographing. For more information, call the Children's Room at 617-349-4038.
Avi and I got off to a rocky start twenty-five years ago, when we got into it in the pages of SLJ. His article? "Reviewing the Reviewers." My response? "Reviewing Avi." Things got much better between us since, though.
