Isn't that the cutest poster? I'm so looking forward to participating in the first annual Hudson Children's Book Festival on Saturday, May 16th. I'll be there with more than fifty other authors for a full day of signings, shmoozing, workshops, panels, and of course, snacks. Stop by from 10 to 4, would love to see you there.
(First Amendment fans, note that I'll be on a panel at 2:00 PM discussing "First Amendment 'Writes': How Far Is Too Far in YA Literature?" Other panelists are Daphne Grab, Michael Northrop and Amanda Marrone.
Directions and a full listing of all the authors and cool events are on the festival's website. Also, please check out the "Name the Whale!" contest. When was the last time you got to name a whale?
