    PARROTS, PIRATES, FREAK SNOWSTORMS AND HALLOWEEN!


    What a weekend!  I love Halloween, anyone who's written "DRACULA IS A PAIN IN THE NECK!"  definitely would. And my editor at Roaring Brook, Nancy Mercado, even said that we could launch the book on HALLOWEEN! I had my parrot and pirate hat all ready for a book party at BOOKS OF WONDER with wonderful other writers.  A little rain -- that's okay -- but we had snow, sleet, Slush!   Mordicai was snowed in.  

     

    But friends showed up.  Here are  Jerry Rodgers and Marsall Marcovitz.  Jerry is an actor and makes a great pirate.   And Mordicai showed up on Tuesday just to wear the hat! 

    Then it was down to the Halloween Parade!  My friends "Broadway Bodies" dance in the parade so we got to go watch the start!   New York Loves Halloween! And my cousins, Melba and Hugh Levick came in from Paris.  Melba and Marshall took great photos.   And the best thing was that the snow had melted! 

    So Happy GHOULS!  And Happy Parrots and Pirates

    Glad your book launch survived the freaky snow.
    Is this the best way to contact you? Hoped to see you Oct 16 in NY--but I don't think my invite reached you. I had an open house for old friends--not so far back as MacMillan days but lots of delightful people from the years after. BTW John Miraglia died in April. email me, girl!

    I didn't realize the launch was the day of the snow! Oy! I hope it was fun anyway, and the photos are wonderful. Can't wait to read it!
