ALA: Scalzi, Charlotte Jones, et al

A delightful surprise tonight to meet Charlotte Jones, the granddaughter of Madeleine L’Engle, who will be part of the proceedings tomorrow.

A great dinner all the way around, including the lovely Kathleen Dougherty and the one-man army that is John Scalzi. John’s just a great guy all the way around. As were the librarians, including the redoubtable Milton Wolf with tales of adventure.

I will start the festivities tomorrow talking about squid, followed by Charlotte talking about God (among other things), Scalzi probably talking about everything under the sun, and Steven Erickson finishing things off. Unfortunately, Erickson’s plane got in too late for him to join us.

This has been a wonderful day in DC, following a couple of weeks of intense work and concentration.
