Believe me when I say this: I am grateful to be invited to participate in children’s book festivals, keenly aware that someday these opportunities will stop coming. Glad to get out there, meet readers, sign books. It’s an honor.
Here’s how the year in festivals is shaping up so far. I am always eager to link school visits with these festivals (hint, hint). Feel free to contact me for more information.
Kids Read: A Book Festival
April 13, Poughkeepsie, NY.
This is a brand new festival, some folks in the Poughkeepsie area trying to do good things for their community. The festival will be located at Our Lady of Lourdes HS. Happy to lend my support.
Hudson Children’s Book Festival
May 4, Hudson, NY.
This one has a special place in my heart, and is closest to my home. Always glad to be a part of it. Oh, and sweet poster by the sagacious Wendell Minor.
Chappaqua Children’s Book Festival
October 5, Chappaqua, NY.
They always guarantee beautiful weather. That’s how Chappaqua rolls! And every year somebody says, “Maybe Hillary Clinton will come.” She might!
Warwick Children’s Book Festival
October 12, Warwick, NY.
Sweet town, worth a visit if you’ve never been. There’s a place on the corner that makes the best egg sandwiches. I arrive an hour early just to grab one.
