Upcoming Events and Scheduling School Visits

Hello, blog and website friends, and forgive my lack of information on bookish events. I’ve been in the process of updating my website for…well, longer than I intended, and the result is that events and other news have gotten short shrift.

SO! In an attempt to rectify that fact, (even as we finalize the updated website!) I am listing my next few bookstore and conference events below!

In addition, I’ll remind all teachers, librarians, and other educators that I am now booking school visits, which are tremendously fun for me and the hundreds and hundreds of kids who get to hear about writing, revision, rejection, new books, and my cats. Please take a look here for more information.

 

Fun fact: this school had just done a production of The Little Mermaid, and the coral was still in the background. I may have sung a few bars of Under the Sea.

School visits usually include lunch with a select group of kids! Talking with your mouth full totally allowed.

 

If you want to see me in a bookstore or conference, here is a list of my next few events. I will update as I add more!

TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 19th, 6:30 PM TRIDENT BOOKSTORE, BOSTON, MA
