Looking Back: Where the Mountain Meets the Moon

I was ecstatic last week when I got news that my good friend Grace Lin had won a Newbery Honor Award for her wonderful fantasy novel Where the Mountain Meets the Moon.

I thought I'd put together a little retrospective post with videos of Grace talking about Where the Mountain Meets the Moon, the book trailer, pictures that I took at the launch party for the book, and the celebratory dinner we Blue Rose Girls had after the party.

It was fun looking back. That was a wonderful launch party for WHERE THE MOUNTAIN MEETS THE MOON--and a grand celebratory dinner after it. I was so happy to be there with you and the other Blue Rose Girls.

Now we have an excuse to celebrate all over again!

You rock! I saw the link on Grace's Facebook fan page. What a great idea. I hope you are well. I miss you.

It's nice to hear from you. The launch party for WHERE THE MOUNTAIN MEETS THE MOON was great. Lots of people attended it--SRO.

The reading council misses you too. People often inquire about you at our dinner meetings.

Thanks for these videos, I enjoyed learning about the process behind Grace Lin writing Where the Mountiain Meets the Moon. I've read stellar reviews of the book and I can't wait to read it (trip to Borders this weekend!)
The launch party looks fun. Congratulations Ms. Lin on the Newberry Honor!
