Here I am on my panel at “A Company of Authors,” which attracted an audience of about a hundred at Stanford to celebrate Shakespeare’s birthday last Saturday. Not only was mine the only children’s book, but I was one of the few non-academics. The professor who chaired my panel had actually not known that. He assumed at first that my title must be French, pronounced “Moose-un-AY” – a treatise, perhaps, on an obscure medieval French poet. But the audience seemed more than happy with a bit of light relief, and bought several books.
