Happy autumn! Rain has returned the Pacific Northwest, and I couldn’t be happier about that. The leaves are turning and migrating birds are stopping in our backyard for a quick snack. These are tumultuous times, and I hope you are taking time to notice the nature around you and to take care of yourself.
I’m excited to announce that the local author/illustrator festival I help coordinate is going virtual this year. This means that anyone, no matter how far away you are from my library, can join in the fun.
The Words and Pictures Festival 2020 takes place Saturday, October 10, from 10am to 6pm. Fonda Lee will be our keynote speaker (I am SO excited to have her), and there will be author readings, educational presentations and panels, and children’s events throughout the day.
You can find details and register here. The complete schedule will be posted late this week.
I hope you can join us!
