Into the Wild Blue Yonder, i.e. Michigan / Wisconsin

Hi everyone!

Just a quick post before I get on a plane today to remind you all that I’m going to be in MICHIGAN! on WEDNESDAY! doing a bunch of school visits and a thrilling BARNES AND NOBLE EVENT which I hope some of you Michigan FanWings can come to!  Wednesday, October 7th!  At 6pm!  At the Livonia Barnes & Noble, 17111 Haggerty Rd., Northville, Michigan.  I’ll be reading from Book Eight!  Ooooo, please come join me!  🙂

And then on SATURDAY I’ll be in WISCONSIN! for the Sheboygan Children’s Book Festival, as I’ve already mentioned and am so so excited about.  I can’t wait to meet all the other amazing authors and illustrators — and hopefully see some of you guys there!

Of course, I’m not the only author on tour right now, so last week I put on my fangirl/mom hat and took my little ones to see one of THEIR favorite authors, Sarah Mlynowski!  She writes the Whatever After books that my older bear loves so much, and she has a brand new book that looks insanely adorable, which she co-wrote with Emily Jenkins and Lauren Myracle.


We managed to catch her at one of my favorite bookstores, the Blue Bunny in Dedham…

Me and Sarah!  Yay!  (Where are the bears, you might ask?  Running WILD in the bookstore, their most favorite habitat…)

Or, more appropriately, here we are upside down!!  🙂

It was so much fun to see her, and she’s still on tour (as are Emily and Lauren), so if you can’t catch me this week, maybe you can find one of them instead!

All right, I’d better go finish packing!  I have chosen all the books I’m going to bring to read on the planes, but I still have no idea what I’m going to wear.  Because priorities.  🙂

Hopefully see some of you soon!  Yay Michigan and Wisconsin!!

What We’re Reading:
Me:  Shadows, by Robin McKinley, and The Whale Rider, by Witi Ihimaera

With both bears:  Upside-Down Magic, of course!  🙂
