I can’t believe it’s almost the end of January, which means that 2016 is already zipping by! It’s shaping up to be a busy year. Here’s what’s in store in the next few month in terms of book events and release dates (and I’m working on adding more events soon).
Friday, February 19 at 1pm
Special Storytime with Josh Funk at the Eric Carle Museum in Amherst, Mass.
What do you get when you mix bedtime and breakfast with robots and pancakes? Find out when debut picture book authors Anna Staniszewski (Power Down, Little Robot) and Josh Funk (Lady Pancake & Sir French Toast) visit to read their books and share crafts. Book signings to follow. Event is free with Museum Admission. (Can’t make it to the event? You may reserve signed books online or contact The Carle Bookshop at email@example.com.)
