Book Tour!

I'll be on a book tour for The Pout-Pout Fish, Far, Far From Home. Many of my tour stops will be schools, but I also have a few bookstore and library events scheduled.  If you're in the neighborhood of any of these, I'd love to see you!  (Be sure to confirm event details with the venue before attending.)

  • Wednesday, April 5 at 2:00 PM - Simsbury Public Library in Simsbury, CT 
  • Thursday, April 6 at 11:00 AM - Towne Book Center in Collegeville, PA 
  • Saturday, April 8 at 10:30 AM - Hooray for Books in Alexandria, VA 
  • Sunday, April 9 at 2:00 PM - Quail Ridge Books in Raleigh, NC 

I will also be stopping by Politics & Prose (Washington DC), Square Books Jr. (Oxford, MS), and Red Balloon Bookshop (St. Paul, MN) during the tour to sign stock.  If you'd like to order a signed book but can't come to any of the story times, contact any of the story time or stock-signing bookstores before April 4 to put in your request.

Dan Hanna, fabulous illustrator of The Pout-Pout Fish books, will also be touring (we're on separate tours). You can meet him Tuesday, April 4th at 4pm at Hicklebee's (San Jose, CA); Saturday, April 8th at 10am at Changing Hands (Phoenix, AZ); and Sunday, April 9th at 11:30am at BookPeople (Austin, TX).

My blog has gotten a bit dusty again, but I'll have Michigander Monday interviews beginning again in April, so stay tuned for those.

Also in April, I will be headed out on a book tour for The Pout-Pout Fish, Far, Far from Home.  I'll be in Simsbury, CT; Collegeville, PA; Elkins Park, PA; Alexandria, VA; Raleigh, NC; Oxford, MS; and St. Paul, MN.  I'll post details of my itinerary later this month.

And, in the meantime, I have a new book!  Bloom, beautifully illustrated by the talented Mary Lundquist, hit the shelves this month.  You can find it at your favorite library or bookstore.

Celebrate all that blooms!
