I can’t wait to visit Solvang, the cute-as-a-wooden-shoe Danish town in the heart of the gorgeous Santa Ynez valley wine country, near Santa Barbara. Come for the day, see the windmills, eat Danish pastries, ride the old-fashioned trolley and visit the Hans Christian Andersen museum. But most of all, come by The Book Loft’s annual open house! A day of fun is planned for the whole family at this wonderful indie bookstore, with authors scurrying about like the little enchanted mice we are.
Open House lasts all day, from 9 AM - 8 PM. I’ll be on hand to sign books after 4 PM, exact time TBD — check back soon for details!
What fun! I’ll be putting on my guest bookseller hat from 10 AM to 11 AM to celebrate Small Business Saturday with my friends at Chevalier’s, the oldest independent bookstore in Los Angeles. Please stop by and say ahwoo! You can buy a book and enjoy beautiful Larchmont Blvd., one of my favorite LA ‘hoods and the perfect place to grab excellent coffee and a scrumptious Saturday breakfast.
Meet some of your favorite middle-grade authors, all in one place! Stuart Gibbs (Spy School), Leslie Margolis (We Are Party People), Sarah Mlynowski (Upside-Down Magic), and Maryrose Wood (The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place) will appear together at Chevalier’s Books, LA’s oldest independent bookstore. Books will be available for sale and signing.
Acorns for Nutsawoo will be gratefully accepted.
Wolf children cosplay alert! I’ll be at LA ComicCon on SATURDAY AFTERNOON only, from 2 PM to 4 PM at BOOTH 1314 (on the map as Society for Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators). Come say hi, grab a button and take a selfie! All the Incorrigible Children books will be available for sale and signing. Purchase event tix at the LA ComicCon website.
