Jeanne Birdsall talks about Nick from the Penderwicks

We were lucky enough to host Jeanne Birdsall at our Laurel Village store for the launch of her newest book, The Penderwicks at Point Mouette. We had an awesome turnout of adoring fans, all of whom had many questions about the origins of Jeanne's unique and lovable characters. Here, Jeanne talks about the Nick, a character she based on a real person, who is now serving in Afghanistan. At the end of the event we were all invited to write a letter to Nick and his fellow soldiers so that he would know our thoughts and best wishes were with him.
