This is their big Caldecott signing event with all (I believe) of the 2008 winners in attendance. Should be fun.


The second leg will encompass more New York, Kutztown (PA), Vancouver, Seattle, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, St. Paul, Chicago, and Naperville (IL) at the end of April.

Please remember to check with the venue beforehand as sudden changes in schedule can occur.

I hope to see you there!
