Tuesday Topics – 7 People I’d Like to Meet

The Austin Family Diary
The following are 7 people that I would love to meet personally. I have copied their basic biographic information, but I didn’t specify why I want to meet each of them. I think my reasons should be obvious!

I love your list! Every one of them is inspirational, but I have to say that I met Jodi Picoult! I went to one of her book talks three years ago and I got to stay afterwards and talk to her about writing. So much fun!
