Who is that good looking chick in the picture? Why, it's Flat Shannon. (I am the one behind her). Flat Shannon was sent to my friend Bernie by her niece, Shannon (you probably didn't need me to tell you that). Shannon is in second grade in Texas. Her teacher had the class draw pictures of themselves and then send the picture to someone who would take the picture to various locales write the kids a letter about all the interesting things the flat version of them saw. The person was also asked to take pictures.
I was very flattered when Bernie asked if she could take a picture of me and my books with flat Shannon so she could write her niece about the "famous" (I love my friends) author Flat Shannon had her picture taken with.
Aside from our visit, Flat Shannon also saw Old Salem in Winston-Salem, Battleground Military Park, and the Woolworth's Sit-in Museum where the first sit-in was held in downtown Greensboro on February 1, 1960.
So "hi" to Flat and real Shannon. And happy travels...
