Usually, the arrival of September 1st makes me shudder and shiver with thoughts of looming winter. But this year I’m celebrating the publication of Esther’s Hanukkah Disaster! My eighth children’s book, it’s my first one to come out in hardcover and paperback at the same time. The illustrator, Andy Rowland, did a wonderful job with my story. Look under “Books” to see where to buy it!Tomorrow, September 3rd, from 3:15-3:45 I’ll be reading 3 of my picture books at the Lexington Farmers’ Market Tomato Festival, Mass. Ave. and Woburn Street.
