It was a little idea that turned into a couple of phone calls, then a few emails and eventually exploded into two-and-a-half months of planning. Finally, after a restless night, Just One More Book!! (Mark and Andrea, and their two daughters, Lucy and Bayla) set out early in the morning of November 12, 2008 for a six-day road trip to live, eat, socialize, paint and read with children’s book creators in Connecticut and Massachusetts.
Part 1 of this series recounts the story of how the trip came to be and includes footage of the drive from Ottawa, Ontario to Roxbury, Connecticut. It also features photographs and video footage of some of the people we spent time with and places we visited — all of which will appear later in the series. The travel sequence ends with our arrival at Lane Smith’s and Molly Leach’s home.
