If you want to add another dimension to your spring break reading, consider these two opportunities, courtesy of Children’s Book World.
On Tuesday, March 25th, Tom Angleberger, the genius behind The Origami Yoda series, will be at Children’s Book World promoting his newest book, Princess Labelmaker to the Rescue. (I don’t have that one yet, but we did recently get The Surprise Attack of Jabba the Puppet – and Mrs. Trusty has a Jabba the Puppet hanging on her bulletin board.)
Then on Thursday, the 27th, stop by to meet Johnathan Stroud, author of The Bartimaeus Trilogy. He’ll be promoting his new series, Lockwood & Co.
Both events begin at 7PM. If you can get there, I highly recommend it. Children’s Book World puts on a great event. They’re usually not too crowded, so you have a chance to really have a discussion with the author as part of a group, and then time to talk with him (or her) individually if you get a book signed. I’ve met lots of authors there over the last few years and always have a great time.
