Friends:

Today, I was the guest speaker at the CaddoAssociation of School Librarians End of the Year Luncheon. The librarians were a blast. We had so much fun singing, clapping, and laughing. There were even some tender moments.

I was so impressed with the room’s set-up. They centered the theme of the luncheon around my book, The Cajun Cornbread Boy. They made “Cornbread Boy” centerpieces (above) which consisted of a glass bowl, a wooden spoon, oven mit, cornbread mixes, and a bottle of cayenne pepper. Sooooo adorable!

In addition, they even made The Cajun Cornbread Boy placemats! Thank you so much, Judy and Jennifer. I LOVED the room. Y’all made me feel so special! You spiced up my day, for sure!

I had fun meeting all the librarians and signed a bunch of books. Eliana and Camrynn were little ladies at the luncheon and were a great help, carrying supplies, cleaning up, and taking pictures. Thank you girls!

A special thank you to Jeannie Machowski, who opened her home and heart to me. I am privileged to be called your friend! Hugs to her awesome family too – James, Abby and Adam. Y’all rock!

Thank you also to the spectacular librarians of Caddo Parish. I appreciate the work you do on a daily basis. Remember, books matter. Words matter. Children matter. YOU matter. So keep doing what you are doing – making a world of difference!

Until next time…

Warmly, Dianne
