Karen Healey tells a true story


Hi all! I'm finally back from my travels to the Southern Hemisphere--returned to New York last night. Don't have time for a real post, so I thought I'd leave you with this video of Karen Healey kicking off the New Zealand Listeners Gala Night of the Auckland Writers and Readers Festival. Eight authors, including Meg Rosoff, Fatima Bhutto, and A.A. Gill were tasked to tell true stories inspired by the alphabet. Here's Karen's story:

This week is Book Expo America here in NYC, so I'm diving right back into the swing of things...more next week!

Edited to add: Karen Healey just blogged about this as well, and includes a transcript of her true story here.

Hah, great minds, I just posted about this! I included a transcript for video-unable folks, so perhaps you would like to link?

Oh SO good! Thank you for sharing. Karen is hilarious. Now I'm smiling from cheek-to-cheek!
