Kids Lit Quiz World Final

posted in: What's Up | 4

 

I was invited to attend the World Final of the Kids Lit Quiz today. Canberra Grammar (Australia) won the final. In the evening we had a dinner and I sat with one of the Australian families. The dad went to buy us a drink and I began talking with the mum.

“What kinds of books do you write?” she asked.

“A lot of sports books,” I said.

“Oh mY husband will like you, he loves sports,” she said. “He works for the Brumbies (Super 15 rugby team).”

“Oh yeah, what does he do for the Brumbies,” I said, thinking she might say, accounts or media.

“CEO.”

      It was pretty cool having a chat with the CEO about rugby etc sis. He was a real down to earth guy 🙂
