When Greenwillow authors go a visiting . . .

Amy Brecount White recently visited Lynne Rae Perkins in Michigan. She was in the area in time for “Shardfest.”  We are told that Shardfest took place in Lynne Rae’s driveway on one the hottest days of the summer. Shardfest participants got to hammer tiles, smash already broken mugs, etc. etc. etc. to come up with the perfect pieces to fit into the ceramic circles a friend of Lynne Rae’s had made. The finished art was ultimately glued to Lynne Rae’s driveway wall. Road trip anyone?

  1. I read it as chardfest and was so looking forward to leafy green plant sculptures.

    Oh well.

  2. Lynne Rae Perkins says:

    shardfest! show up next year, the Monday after the first weekend in August . . . it’s a big wall, we’ve got a lot of work to do.

  3. Lynne Rae Perkins says:

    nice pics, Amy!

  4. Lynne Rae Perkins says:

    we could have chard, too . . .

  5. Thanks, Lynne Rae! It was so much fun, and it will definitely be an annual pilgrimage for us to see the wall.

    And, got it! Chard and peaches from the farmers market next time. :-)
