Appleton — Fox River Book Fest, 4pm!

If you’re in the Fox River Valley of Wisconsin, stop by the Appleton Public Library at 4pm today.  I’ll be talking about the inspiration for Stupid Fast.  Had a great time in Menasha last night!

Nothing Special wins Minnesota Book Award

I was pretty surprised.  I was really honored just to be included in the finalists (a really excellent crew, with fantastic books: Molly Beth Griffin, William Alexander, Margi Preus — all of whom I told that I loved them, for lack of anything better to say). I gave a rambling speech and got this fancy pants trophy that would totally destroy a car if dropped from a couple of stories up.  It was a great night!
