A child was on line--and at that time especially, I did not write children's books (there's a teen heroine in my latest novel, As Night Falls, but that wasn't out yet when I visited Surprise). I knew I was going to write a book where the protagonist is an author, she encounters a child at a bookstore...and something crazy happens. (less)

Take Your Child to a Bookstore Field Trip

Take Your Child to a Bookstore Day, celebrated annually on the first Saturday of December by over 800 bookstores on 5 continents–and watch out, Antarctica–we’re coming!–has been a labor of my heart since 2010. You can read about how it all began on the website and in other posts, but for now I want to tell you about TYCBD Field Trips!

John...my goodness. I hardly know what to say. I have read your R&R posts (reviews and recipes, that is) for so many years. To be a John Bohnert Best Of is better than any Washington Post list or whatever is circulating at the moment.

Thank you.

Jenny
