Daily Notes: Monday, March 8

What a terrible day to try to get any work done. I can’t wait to go home, put on some sandals, and take the dog for a walk it’s so gorgeous outside!

This past weekend we were at Kentucky Crafted- you might have seen us on your way to the food aisle for some fudge samples. It was my first year going, and I have to say it was great checking out all the other exhibitors and getting to talk to some of our fans! I feel a lot of pride for our state, and it’s patently obvious that many others do too. Kentucky has some of the greatest writers, artists, craftsmen, and people in the country (as well as the greatest basketball team!) Big thanks to the folks at Kentucky Crafted for hosting such a great show, the Louisville Exposition Center, the Crowne Plaza, and a shout-out to our friends at McClanahan, the Jesse Stuart Foundation, and Arts Across Kentucky!

Things to look for:

Publisher’s Weekly has a great review of Robert C. Doyle’s In Enemy Hands, which was also reviewed by the Library Journal not so very long ago.

UPK will be at the Appalachian Studies Conference this weekend- make sure to say hi to Anne Dean!

Now, go enjoy the day, but keep track of us on Twitter or right here on the blog!

Happy sunny Monday!
