Recently a friend, and fellow librarian, shoved a small booklet at me and instructed me to read it. “It’s a graphic novel travel log,” she said. Knowing how I like to travel log, she said I needed to read it. “It’s about Harry Potter Wizarding World, Orlando,” she said. I was sold. She knows my weakness for anything Potter related. I read the whole thing that night and was amazed.
I have been a fan of Sharon Kay Penman’s novels since before there was Facebook, and before every author had a blog. If you’d have told me then that thanks to social media I would one day not only meet the author that inspired me to choose history as a college major, but that she would hand me a cupcake for coming to her book reading, I would not have believed you.
