Avi

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.

Oh my gosh, I want to read those articles!

I'd be worried to be off to a "rocky start" with Avi. Something about the Christopher Walken vibe I picked up when I first saw him speak...

Darn. I'd really like to come to this. But I'll be in Philadelphia.

Lois, first prize or second?

re Walken, loved him in Sarah Plain and Tall. We all shouted for Glenn to HIDE THE PITCHFORK.
