A good friend just told me January 16th is Appreciate a Dragon Day and my first book talk for Naomi Novik's alternative history/dragon series is... January 16th. I wish I could claim I cleverly planned it, but unfortunately not. I'll just have to settle for great timing.
It looks like Appreciate a Dragon Day was started by author Donita K. Paul, but if you google 'dragon appreciation day,' you'll discover other days throughout the year when you can pay homage to these wonderful mythical beasts.
Hope I see you Wednesday evening. I just finished rereading His Majesty's Dragon and I loved it as much the second time around as I did the first time.
