Nice to Meet You: My First Barnacle Is Bored Reading

Anythink Libraries in Thornton, CO graciously hosted me (and Barnacle) last week at the Wright Farms branch. I was able to read from Barnacle Is Bored and A Pig, A Fox and a Box. It was my first time reading Barnacle Is Bored, which was a treat. With each book I've written, I've learned that it takes a little experience to get used to how kids react to words, scenes and plot twists. 

The kids were awesome and happily munched on snacks the library had supplied. Anythink also ordered extra copies of my Penguin Early Readers and made a cool display.

And speaking of Penguin Young Readers, the week before the Barnacle reading, I attended the Public Librarian Association's annual convention in Denver. More than 5,000 librarians (and book lovers) convened for every library and book topic you could think of. I only was able to spend a day there, but it was memorable. I signed books at Penguin's table and later went to dinner with Scholastic and a number of amazing librarians (plus some cool fellow authors). 

Hope you are enjoying or will enjoy a great book soon. Thanks for stopping by the blog!
