Opening for 22nd Annual Children's Illustrator Show
Richard Michelson Gallery
This is the big event of the year for MA authors and Illustrators. The opening features amazing art by literally TONS of local authors and illustrators like Tony DiTerlizzi, Jarret Krosocszka, Rebecca Guay, Diane DeGroat, Wendell Minor, Barry Moser, Scott Fisher, Mordicai Gerstein, and many, many more. This year will feature work by Jules Feiffer. I'll have some new work up (from books, straight drawings, and sculpture) as well. Always great fun.
Sunday, November 13, time 11 am
The Connecticut Children's Book Fair
U Conn, Storrs, CT
Reading at 11am. Signings 11:30am-12:30pm and 2:00-3:00pm
Another star-studded event including David Macauly, Tomie DePaola, Ted and Betsy Lewin, Jane Yolen, Matt Tavares, Grace Lin and many more. The Dodd Center at U Conn is the institution that holds my papers (along with the New York Department of Sanitation), so it's fun to come back and speak. I'll be bringing my pals Elephant and Piggie along to meet the kids (rumors of a "rumble" with Clifford are greatly exaggerated).
That's it for November.
Please remember to double check with the venues about schedule/changes/policies.
