I get Around (Table)...

A heads' up about an appearance that combines fun things like radio, picture book art, and pals.

This upcoming Friday, March, 13th, I and a bunch of neighbors/kids book folk like Norton Juster, Jarrett J. Krosoczka, Jeanne Birdsall, and Jane Yolen* will take up the morning chatting on public radio's WAMC's The Roundtable.

The show starts with interviews at about 9:15 am and continue through noon. I'm scheduled to chat at @11am (hopefully a schedule will be posted on the WAMC site in the coming days).

Here's the cool thing. You can listen to the interviews live on the radio, on live/archived on WAMC's streaming service, or sooper-extra live at the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art in Amherst, MA.

That's right, we'll be recording from the museum, and guests are invited to sit in and see and hear us. If you're in the 'hood, please drop by. It should be good fun.

Viva radio!

Thanks to you, Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed climbed to #4 on this week's New York Times Bestseller list, marking its 8th week on the list.

Unbelievable.

Thanks, you.

*tentatively scheduled, of course...
