SQUEEEEEE! (or "Brothers don't shake hands, brothers gotta HUG!")
I got a hug from Stephenie Meyer! I was the only one out of the WHOLE crowd who got a hug! And she shook hands with Katie and Jimmy! That too was out of the ordinary!
The reason I got a hug was because Stephenie and I actually knew of each other's existence before she published her book, although we had never met in person. I thank the interweb for making acquaintance without face-to-face meetings possible! When I told her who I was, she got up and came around the table for the hug. I was totally surprised by that and so forgot to give her the NCCTs* I brought. Sorry, Stephenie!
Anyway, on to a few pictures. Maybe even a video in a later post!!!
Q and A session--She was personable, funny, and at ease; and she seemed to connect with the crowd. She was gracious to everyone who came to see her. Her hair, by the way, is AWESOME.
