Milwaukee is not a day trip ~ but I got to meet Peter Lerangis!!!

Me and Peter Lerangis - - - how cool is that!
Peter Lerangis kicked off his tour for the newest 39 Clues book, The Dead of Night, this week.  He was in Wisconsin on Tuesday, March 13 at the Bay View Library.  I was thrilled to have the opportunity to attend.
I took a half day off work and hit the road, it's just under 5 hours to Milwaukee from my house.  It was a great time.  He gave a presentation about the life of an author and talked about where he gets his story ideas and such.  He was funny, interesting, and entertaining; I was thrilled to be there.  The room wasn't huge, but it was pretty much full and I was one of very few adults not accompanied by a child (all with 39 Clues book clutched in their hands).  He spoke, answered questions, signed books, and even has his own Author Agent 39 Clues card that he signed and handed out.  At the end my only wish was a shorter drive home.
