Most Mondays, this blog will be featuring a Michigan children's book author or illustrator. I've started this new series -- which kicked off last week with a Boni Ashburn Q&A -- in order to help draw attention to the extraordinary children's lit talent pool that Michigan has.
Many of the profiles will feature authors/illustrators with whom you're already familiar but may not have known reside right here in Michigan. Other profiles will introduce you to folks you've not heard of but who will become your new favorites as soon as you get to know them. So stayed tuned on Mondays for more profiles.
For a few of my thoughts on being a "literary localvore," click here. I encourage you to show your pride in the great state of Michigan: grab a book (or two, or three, or forty) by a Michigan author, head to your favorite Michigan spot, and enjoy!
