What a fun, fun evening with the book club at the Brown Branch tonight. Such insight and interesting comments and provocative questions and laughter! So much laughter! Had a fabulous evening. Thanks for inviting me, kaleidoscope jane and all her friends! We loved being with you!
Such fun yesterday at the Main Branch of Tuscaloosa Public Library at their monthly Book Club, where we explored and discussed the many eccentric characters in 'kaleidoscope jane & other stories.' Lively, articulate, enthusiastic and insightful comments. I loved it!
Nothing like reading to children!
Had such a fun time reading to Mrs. Anderson's kindergarten class on Wednesday, the 15th at Matthews Elementary School. The children were attentive, curious, and so sweet. Reading to children is the very best reason to be an author!
two weeks of literary fun!
Loved our launching on 4/27 at Ernest & Hadley Booksellers of 'Tuscaloosa Stories,' a book published by Borgo Publishing for 4th graders through tween-aged readers about Tuscaloosa and its history. It was quite a celebration! Before that, Joey took the stage in the book I wrote featuring his messy room. This book, 'The Messy Room' is a beautiful picture book illustrated by Tina Modugno from Quebec.
On May 4th, Jim and I signed at Tuscaloosa Barnes & Noble Booksellers. What a wonderful day, and I so enjoyed the surprise offer that I read my book about Joey during the morning Barnes & Noble StoryTime.
How lucky to have two wonderful, supportive bookstores for authors in our city!
A big day on Saturday, April 27th at Ernest & Hadley Booksellers in celebration of Independent Bookstore Day and to kick off the Week of the Child. The Tuscaloosa Writers and Illustrators Guild will be launching 'Tuscaloosa Stories,' a book of historical fiction and nonfiction for young readers, third grade up to tweens. This is a book first conceived to help celebrate Tuscaloosa's Bicentennial. My contributions are a nonfiction piece about animals that once roamed in this part of the state, and an historical fiction story based on the first airplane flight here in this city. Jim has also contributed two historical fiction pieces.
But first, I will read and sign my new children's picture book, 'The Messy Room.' A fun day all around!
