Book Tour Day 1: Richmond Virginia / by abby hanlon

Dory Dory Black Sheep is out.  I had 13 events in 5 cities in a week!  I met some unbelievably wonderful booksellers, librarians, teachers and a few thousand kids along the way.  Thank you to the people who made this trip happen: my editor, Lucia Monfried, my publicist Bridget Hartzler, and booksellers Jill Stefanovich and Jenesse Evertson at bbgb books, Angie Tally at the Country Bookshop, Ellen Greene at Book People (with a special thank you to Topher Bradfield) and Linda Sherman-Nurick at Cellar Door Books. 

At St. Michael's Episcopal school, the kids made their own imaginary friends.  "The Death of Blood" friend really jumped out at me.
