If you're in the Lansing area, be sure to head over to the East Lansing library this Wednesday. Children's book author Sue Stauffacher will be there to discuss her books, how to publish your own book, and the process of book creation.
I've had the pleasure of hearing Sue speak at several conferences I've attended. She's warm and smart and fun and funny. She's a great author and an amazing person. I would highly recommend attending her event in East Lansing.
This spring, Sue and her husband will be bicycling from Grand Rapids, Michigan, to Chicago, Illinois, to deliver donated copies of her recently released picture book Tillie the Terrible Swede (Knopf, January 2011) to the Chicago Public Library. In Chicago, they will stop at the Swedish American History Museum and the Sulzer branch of the library. Along the way, they will visit schools that have not had a children’s book author visit within the last five years.
So go see Sue before she sets off on her trip! You'll thoroughly enjoy hearing her speak and learning about her many wonderful books.
