Chautauqua is a beautiful place. This is the Hotel Athenaeum where I stayed. I was in the annex, out of the picture on the left.

One of the lovely private homes at Chautauqua.

Me with Kathi Appelt, children's writer and my faculty mentor for the week. Kathi has written picture books, poetry, and middle grades fiction and memoir. She's also on the faculty of the MFA program in children's literature at Vermont College.

I came home feeling like one of these carvings.
