I haven’t been able to post anything about my visit to Piper Middle School on Thursday because right afterward I had to pack so I could leave at 6:00 Friday morning for the Great Manhattan Mystery Conclave. I’ve just arrived home again, and I wanted to quickly say that I had a wonderful time at Piper. The students were delightful, attentive, and full of great questions, and the faculty and staff treated me like a celebrity.
I also had a great time (as usual) at the Conclave and wholeheartedly recommend this conference to all mystery lovers—readers as well as writers. Over the next few days I’ll post more about my Piper visit, including photos, as well as about the Conclave.
