What a beautiful morning to hide books in the downtown area of Hannibal and near the Mississippi River. I had one helper and we spread the love of reading from the Mark Twain statue to the Tom and Huck statue and all the way to Nipper Park near Bear Creek. We left kid friendly mysteries and fantasy books on park benches and inside the coffee shop on Main Street. We even hid one in Tom Sawyer's paint bucket near the fence by his boyhood home. Oh, and I hid a copy of Frankenstein (young readers edition) on the steps of the wax museum (formerly known in the book Tom Sawyer as The Haunted House on Hill Street.) Happy Hunting!
My favorite time of the year starts on October first. I can't wait to take a few detours this fun, spooky season. Living in a tourist town has its privileges. I plan to visit Mark Twain's Wax Museum and Haunted House,. I will update with my first-hand accounts of any and all Halloween activities. This, of course, is for novel research.
