Youth Literature Festival, October 4-6th!


Come see me and several other children's authors from the great state of IL at the Youth Literature Festival this weekend! I'll be talking to area schools all day Thursday and Friday and then on Saturday I'll be at the Community Day Celebration talking to kids, speaking on panels, and signing books! Thanks to the University of Illinois for organizing such a great event and all the great sponsors who made it possible! If you're in the area, I hope to see you there!  


The Youth Literature Festival celebrates the value of literature in the lives of youth by bringing together local and national authors, illustrators, poets, and storytellers to share their stories, their craft, and their enthusiasm with children, teens and adults. Author visits to area schools are a central part of the festival activities. The festival also includes a Community Day Celebration that is free to the public on October 6, 2012. Community Day activities encourage all ages to share in the value of literature with hands-on activities, performances, and author presentations.  


HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE! 

PS: Congrats to Kristin Rae, who just signed with my agent, Marietta Zacker!! So happy for you, girlie! :)
