We want to know - did you throw your hat in the air?


It sounds like you had such a wonderful time. And what a special trip! To remember all of these stories from your childhood and then to share them with your daughter! How sweet!


glad you had a good time up in Minne-SO-ta eh? Culver's up here in the midwest (started in WI ) are getting to be like the Sonic restaurants down south! LOL


One of the highlights for me was seeing you and your sister do the Schotisse with that adorable baby strapped to you! Thank you for all you have done to keep Maud's work in the public eye!

What great fun! I've enjoyed reading your posts (and tweets) about the convention. ... you must have been laughing while you danced w/baby strapped to you.

Extra fun to meet Jeff from Books & Bars ... I hadn't made the geographic connection until you pointed it out.

Sorry to just be responding now, but thanks for all your thoughts. I think I nearly threw my back out dancing with Isabella attached to me. Especially during that part of the turkey trot where you jump in a circle on one leg while sort of tipped over...

And I would have thrown my hat in the air, but that neighborhood where the house is is super swanky and my sister and I felt like we might get carted away if we lingered too long. As it was I took a quick picture with my phone and ran. Next time I'm in town I'll find the statue of MTM and definitely throw my hat in the air. ;)


I sooo wanted to go to this - thanks for taking me along for the ride with your photos and stories! I'm glad it was as delightful as it sounded!
Betsy/Tacy forever!

This was all in Minneapolis? That is about 2 1/2 hours from me. I really have to try to stay more aware of things like this. :)

I just discovered your blog through the BBAW Meme and read your profile. I too am a HUGE fan of Betsy-Tacy. I enjoyed reading your trip to the Convention.

I am new to blogging, just started in July. I like the look of yours and will enjoy reading further posts.

Susan Gaissert

Thank you so much for the posts on the four days of the convention. I am printing them out, and I will read them on the train later today, on my way to the meeting of the Greater New York Chapter of the Betsy-Tacy Society. Several of the women there attended, and I know we'll be discussing the convention, so, thanks to you, I won't feel so left out.

Who is Book Club Girl?

  • Book Club Girl is: a member of a book club and an avid reader who spent most of her childhood immersed in a book, an English major who considered library school until she realized it was all about computers, so turned to publishing, where she now works (but she vows to talk about books from all over and not to simply flog those from her own house). She was single, lived in the city, met a man, moved to the 'burbs, and is now a wife, a stepmother, a mother, and in her spare time, a fledgling blogger dedicated to sharing great books, news and tips with book club girls everywhere.

My Review Policy

  • I review fiction and nonfiction that is appropriate for book clubs. This includes literary and some women's commercial fiction as well as memoir and narrative nonfiction. I do not review self-help, thrillers, mysteries, horror, or fantasy. I have a fondness for YA literature and while the blog is not devoted to it (well, except for my obsession with the Betsy-Tacy series), I will occasionally review some YA books. The best way to reach me to request a review is to email me at bookclubgirl AT gmail DOT com.
