On April 15, 2-4 pm, I’ll be joining nine other area children’s authors and illustrators at An Unlikely Story, Jeff (Diary of a Wimpy Kid) Kinney’s destination bookstore and café in Plainville, Massachusetts. There’ll be schmoozing, book signing, and a scavenger hunt for the kids. Should be fun! If you’re in the area, I hope you’ll stop by. Here are the details.
I'm still flying high from an amazing event in Vermont, my old stomping grounds. I have a lot to say about it, and haven't had a chance to put my thoughts into words. But look at this sweet write-up by Elizabeth Bluemle, children's author and book store owner extraordinaire! My heart is full.
What a wonderful afternoon we had in Garden City yesterday! It was a thrill to read Are We Still Friends? aloud in public for the first time. And we sold every copy the store had in stock! Many thanks to Stacy Kaplan and the folks at Barrington Books Retold for hosting the event. Many more thanks to friends old and new who turned out. And most thanks of all to my family for being there from the start of this project 20-plus years ago to yesterday's launch. You are the finest of families, indeed!
For local folks who couldn't make it or who couldn't buy all the copies they wanted, Barrington Books is getting in more this week. Leave a message in the comments or contact Barrington Books if you'd like to pick up signed copies.
Next stop, Flying Pig Bookstore in Shelburne Vermont! Can't wait.
