I will be speaking, for about 5 minutes, and signing copies of the infamous Book That Eats People at the Clackamas Town Center Mall on March 13th. I am part of a celebration of Children’s literature sponsored by the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators of Oregon.
I’m scheduled to speak between 3 and 4 and will fill my five minutes with stories about growing up a mosquito farmer in northern Minnesota during the 1930’s and how that propelled me into illustrating The Book That Eats People for Tricycle Press in 2009. Or not.
Here are some previous posts and reviews of The Book That Eats People:
