Congratulations! It sounds like it happened on the perfect day, too. As a transplanted Midwesterner, I’ve loved reading along with your adventures with your mom this week.

I love this! And I love reading about your fun adventures with your mum. I have fun adventures with my daughter, too - in fact, on a recent adventure we visited your bookstore, and we loved that, too! I love your book tour school visits (I’m a school librarian), and then your books, and Ann Patchett…. what a great story. Congratulations!

OMG, what a day that you will never forget. Ann Patchett might be the most amazing woman in the book world. I think of her as my literary godmother. She's not aware that she's been tasked with this honor. And also, what a fact: all kinds of books deserve to be feted. CONGRATULATIONS.

Emma,

Thank you for sharing your wonderful mommy and me fun adventures with us. Thank you for your perceptive, optimistic books ( well, I have read only the grown up ones so far), and big congratulations on the much deserved award. Nothing wrong with your so-called genre! I also greatly enjoyed your visit at the Writers Festival in Lenox last fall, hope to see you again.
