She's been named the 2007 Thurber House Children's Writer in Residence!
We're already planning our tour of Columbus for Lisa. First stop will be The North Market.
At The North Market, we will be sure she samples Jeni's Ice Cream:
"25+ flavors of gourmet, artisanal ice creams. Traditional, signature and seasonal varieties available by the scoop and pint.
Experience ice cream taken to a new level. Fresh, handmade ice cream, sorbet and gelato are all created with the finest and freshest ingredients. The menu of flavors changes frequently. On a given day, you might see Dark Cocoa Gelato, Wild Berry Lavender, Toasted Hazelnut and Salty Caramel."
Pam's Market Popcorn is also a must.
Next stop, Cover to Cover Children's Bookstore.
Later, we'll stop at the Main Branch of the Columbus Metropolitan Library
to see the original art by Aminah Brenda Lynn Robinson.
You see, there's WAY more to Columbus, OH than the Buckeyes! And we've only scratched the surface!
