A fellow Austin children's writer, Alison Dellenbaugh, is one of fifty U.S. winners in an essay contest sponsored by Oscar Mayer in which they will each have a day in the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile. (There were more than 70,000 entries!).
And what did the lovely and brill Ms. Dellenbaugh write about in her essay?
Using the Wienermobile as a bookmobile to go to parks or libraries with her children and crit buddies to giveaway books to kids. The event has been scheduled for Oct. 9.
Allison has a lovely sweet sparkle; I expect more great things from her in the future.
