Hi everyone!

If you live in the Central Valley, please consider visiting me at my table at the Great Valley Bookfest this October. I will also be presenting again this year. It's a wonderful and much-needed literacy-promoting event in our area, so please feel free to spread the word. They are also looking for volunteers, should you be so inclined.

In other news, I am working on a graphic novel project for middle grade readers for the educational imprint Avenue A, a project of Responsive Classroom. Look for more news on that in the coming months. It's slated for publication sometime next year, and it's my first official project of this type, so I'm really excited!

Take care of yourselves, and read on!
