Writing Workshops, Singing and Dancing in Public, and Other Fun Stuff

It’s been a minute since I shared what’s going on, but I had to drop everything and tell you about the upcoming fun stuff in my kid lit life!

If you’ve known me for even a short while, you know that I love teaching writing workshops as much as I love ice cream. I’m so happy that on April 20, I will get the chance to teach two of them in Abilene, at the fantastic Seven and One bookshop. (Actually next door at the museum, and I promise to post pics of the incredible store and space.) If you know any young writers in Abilene, one workshop is full, but there might be a space or two left in the other!

The next news is about the 90-Second Newbery Film Festival in San Antonio. Once again, I will join the inimitable James Kennedy to celebrate young people, their literature, and their films, on May 11 at the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts. James and I will sing, we’ll dance, we may fall down and pretend we meant to do that, we’ll hope the videos of our antics will not come back to haunt us for decades. 😉 If you have a young filmmaker, this is one not to miss!

The last little piece of news is about If You Get Lost! My debut picture book was nominated for the MPIBA Reading the West awards. It is such a thrill to see Deborah Marcero’s artwork and my text on this list with some of my favorite authors in the world.

I’m also doing a couple of local fun school visits, and I’ll share more soon… hope your spring is hopping!
