I'm off to the Fay B. Kaigler Children's Book Festival in Hattiesburg, Mississippi this week! On Wednesday I'll talk about "Saving the Environment One Book at a Time" (of course tied in with the story of A BIRD ON WATER STREET). I've never done this festival before, but I've heard wonderful things about it. And I can visit my artwork, which is archived at the de Grummond Children's Literature Collection. Thursday evening, I
ve been invited to attend the Ezra Jack Keats New Writer and New Illustrator Awards Celebration. That should be fun! So if you are attending - I hope you'll come see me on Wednesday at 11:30 and then party with me on Thursday! Tally-ho!
