If you’re in the Lake Forest Park area, please stop by and help Deb Caletti and me celebrate National Children’s Book Week! We’ll be there at 7 pm. Not signing, but willing to talk books will be two special guests of mine: Mary Casanova, the author of the McKenna books about the American Girl Doll of the Year, and of The Day Dirk Yeller Came to Town, and Sheryl Peterson, author of many wonderful nonfiction books, including her most recent The Great Depression and World War II. These two Minnesotans — both above-average! — have spent the past few days with me up at Shangri-Lar in a writing retreat.
If you come tonight, be sure to ask Sheryl about doorbells ringing at 3 am. . .
