Upcoming Michigan Children's Book Author & Illustrator Events

A few Michigan-related children's book happenings to pass along:
  • Illustrator and author (and former Michigander) Matt Faulkner (now of San Francisco) will be at the Orion Township Public Library on Saturday, Jan. 31 at 2:00 to talk with kids about writing, illustrating, and publishing books. He'll be available to sign books after the talk. Details here.
  • Michigan Notable Book awardee Jean Alicia Elster will be presenting a workshop at the Macomb Book Fair and Writers’ Conference (Mount Clemens Public Library) on writing a children’s book series. She’ll also be signing copies of Who’s Jim Hines?. Book Fair Registration info can be found here.
  • Laurie Keller will be at Barnes and Noble at the Rivertown Mall in Grandville on February 21st.
There are lots of other happenings happening -- these were just a few I came across lately and wanted to note. If you happen to know of others, holler and I'll post those, too.
