Today at ALA, Stephanie had the opportunity to interview Masha Hamilton, author of The Camel Bookmobile, who is in Anaheim this weekend promoting her book and mobile libraries (that's the bookmobile to you and me). It is such an interesting interview in which we learn, among many other things, how Masha came to write the book as a novel, about her trip to Africa as well as her experiences with libraries and book groups here in the states, many of whom, as we know from her post on the blog at ReadingGroupGuides.com, have rallied to raise money for the Camel Book Drive.
Browse inside the book here and if you would like more information on how you can help, the website that Masha set up to donate is www.camelbookdrive.wordpress.com. You can learn more at her site as well. Thank you Masha for speaking with Stephanie and thank you Stephanie for such an insightful interview! The first 5 commenters on this post will receive a copy of The Camel Bookmobile.
