Well, I can't figure out how to make that into an actual link. But if you paste that address into your browser, it will take you to quite a nice interview with David Bradley, the director of GOSSAMER for the Peoples Light Theater in Philadelphia; and with Maggie Fitzgerald, the very gifted 13-year-old who plays the leading role.

I recently was having to write up some autobiographical material for a doctoral candidate in the UK, and so I was thinking about myself at various young ages. At 13 I was shy, awkward, self-conscious, tongue-tied. How do kids like Maggie Fitzgerald become so self-confident and poised, so young? My granddaughter, Nadine, (who is now 16) was also, at 13, articulate and poised.  And neither of them at all obnoxious! I'm in awe of that.

Did you really have to squeeze in the reminder that the Patriots beat the Colts? :)

Yes. It was essential that I mention it...maybe again and again.

I remember the panel with the two yellow-clad Loises (is that the plural of Lois?). I was an aspiring children's book writer and that particular SCBWI conference was a big inspiration. Great to see you two together gaain. Happy Thanksgiving!

I am fairly certain that the plural of Lois is LOISAE.
Happy Thanksgiving to you too, Betty!

Thanks for illuminating me! I also meant again instead of again.
