So, here I am in Kansas City, MO, with Christina Courtenay and Liz Harris, at least one of whom has just gone back to sleep. I’ve been trying unsuccessfully to post pix to FB. Flights were long but good. Security at Newark so hot that they searched my cardigan and my hair! Hotel is v obviously geared up for a huge event, with RT Booklovers material even printed on our key cards. A day to chill today before the convention begins tomorrow. International Visitors reception at 5pm.
