I’m looking forward to going to Sunday school on November 17th, at Kerem Shalom, 659 Elm Street, Concord, MA…
10:45AM – 11:45AM
Here’s the listing on JewishBoston.com: Esther’s Hanukkah Disaster will provide the basis for this program. Jane will read her book, lead a game and families will be able to participate in a craft activity related to the book. There is no fee for this special program. Jane will have her books for sale (and signing!) as well. Our family educator, Nancy Kaplan will join Jane for some Hanukkah songs.
On Saturday, November 16th at 2 PM I will be reading Esther’s Hanukkah Disaster at the wonderful independent bookstore, Bookends, 559 Main St., in Winchester, MA. The store has been so welcoming to me over the years. This is the 3rd book I’ve read to kids at Bookends! My previous two picture books–The Trouble With Cauliflower and Don’t Call Me Sidney–are also for sale in the store. Following the reading this Saturday, young listeners will participate in match-the-animals-to-silly-gifts games: https://www.facebook.com/events/366031316862866/
Just because my children (you know who you are!) had the nerve to grow up and move out doesn’t mean I can’t make my Halloween buddy. Said buddy used to have a pumpkin head, but several years ago, nervy squirrels started gnawing the pumpkin buddy’s head, rendering my personification of Halloween fun, rather gruesome. Hence, the introduction of Ball Head person! The red playground ball–with a permanent marker-ed happy visage–has endured for years, smiling at trick-or-treaters no matter how humiliating its get-up. Here’s this Halloween’s stuffed hippie in my front yard.
I knew it…books never die! I read an article in my local paper about an exhibit at the Drift Contemporary Art Gallery in Portsmouth, NH. When I saw one of the exhibit highlights–a recycled-Golden-books gown, I had to find it on the artist’s site: http://www.ryanjudenovelline.com/golden-book-gown/
I’m trying something new and kind of exciting…Starting Sunday, October 6, Goodreads members can enter to win a paperback copy of my new picture book, Esther’s Hanukkah Disaster. It sounds like a fun program and could introduce the book to new readers! Just look for the book title or my name on Goodreads and enter to win!
