Last year I had the great privilege of The Pout-Pout Fish being chosen as the 2009 Michigan Reads title. I visited libraries and schools in a dozen cities last fall during the Michigan Reads tour. Every visit was exciting and wonderful: I met great kids, great librarians, great teachers, and more. What a terrific and memorable experience!
This year's Michigan Reads book is The Runaway Garden, and author Jeffery Schatzer will be traveling around the state this month and next month. Stops on Jeffery Schatzer's Michigan Reads tour include: Petoskey Public Library, Peter White Public Library, Rudyard School Public Library, Hart Area District Library, Public Libraries of Saginaw, Detroit Public Library, Livonia Public Library, Howell Carnegie District Library, Marshall District Library, Kent District Library, Antwerp Sunshine Library and the Alpena County Library.

Congratulations to author Jeffery Schatzer and illustrator Jeffrey Ebbeler on the selection of The Runaway Garden as this year's Michigan Reads book!
