The Fix, 2015
"My local library is a second home - I write in the quiet areas, I borrow books for myself, and bring my kids in to ask the wonderful children's librarian for help picking the right books. I love talking books with all of the librarians."
"Libraries are sacred time machines where knowledge flows and magic is eternal."
A Work of Art, 2015
"Growing up, my family didn't have money to pay the textbook rental fee at my school, let alone buy books for pleasure. But thanks to my local library, I became an avid reader. I still remember sitting on my bed with the books I'd checked out spread around me as I decided which one to read first. Good times!"

"When a child falls in love with a book, they become readers for life. Libraries are the key to igniting the spark that leads to a love for literature."
Rocks with Wings, 2015
"I love libraries. I spent many, many pleasant and exciting hours at the Santa Fe Public Library as a child, waiting for my Dad to finish his work at the newspaper office. The library was not only a safe haven, it invited me to learn about things I never knew existed and fed my curiosity in a wonderful way. I put my first library card, pale blue with a little metal plate with my name, in my treasure box."
Moonlight on Butternut Lake, 2015
"Public libraries are the heart and soul of any community. They are a place to read, and think and browse and dream."
The Amazing Incredible Shrinking Violin, 2014
"Nothing encourages reading more than libraries!"
A Thousand Letters Home, 2011
"I’m honored to have presented A Thousand Letters Home to over 80 libraries in the past 18 months. I could hardly have imagined all the wonderful “gems” that awaited me in the form of communities and libraries I was not previously familiar with. Libraries truly are the social center and lifeblood of their communities, particularly in rural areas. I look forward to sharing my program with libraries across the country!"
