The Joy of Colleagues

A special treat about being a children's author is the company of other authors. I recently got to be on a Celebration of Children's Books panel at Siena Heights University in Adrian, Michigan with   Debbie Diesen, Debbie Gonzales, Maripat Perkins, Shutta Crum, and Lisa Wheeler, and it was a delight to hear them talk about their craft and to meet SHU students.
Before the program: me, organizer Sally Kruger, authors Debbie Gonzales. Debbie Diesen, Lisa Wheeler, Shutta Crum, Maripat Perkins, and English Program Chair Matthew Barbee
Coming up, a return to the New York State Sheep and Wool Festival in Rhinebeck, New York, on October 15 and 16, where I will join Iza Trapani and Susanna Hill in Tales of Yarn--we'll all tell sheep stories. John Churchman will be there with The SheepOver. Thanks to Merritt Books of Millbrook for putting this on.
Susanna, Iza, and me.
