Jane Yolen at Concordia University

I have for the past few years taken students in the fall to the Plum Creek Literacy Festival.

This spring, the organizers tried something new on 18 March. They hosted a special
breakfast event, something I hope will continue in the years to come.

The breakfast featured an appearance by Jane Yolen and her daughter, with whom Jane collaborates on a number of projects. 

Linda and I enjoyed the presentation a great deal and purchased a couple books. 

I met Jane Yolen around fifteen years ago in Ft. Lauderdale, at an ICFA conference where she raised money for the James Tiptree, Jr., Award.

As she said to me, "We are getting old." I did not know until her presentation, however, that we share a passion for "all things  birds."
