What a Store!

It was Small Business Saturday 2018, and I signed up to participate in the children’s author day at Annie’s Book Stop in Worcester, MA. I’m so glad I did! I’d never been there before. The store has 16,000 new and pre-read books!!!! Plus cards and gifts. Absolutely amazing floor-to ceiling selection and friendly, helpful employees. One could spend days there browsing and finding treasures.

I got to meet other authors in a cozy area of the store, including two terrific young authors (see below). I shared my experience of revising and re-releasing Me and the Weirdos and read Esther’s Hanukkah Disaster. Besides those two titles, the store has signed copies of my books Don’t Call Me SidneyWhat’s Up with This Chicken? and the Writers’ Loft children’s poetry anthology, An Assortment of Animals.

With talented, prolific young author Olivia Lauren. She had just read us OLIVIA CONNECTS, about ways people communicate, and here she’s holding OLIVIA TRAVELS. Look out, world!

Imani Ariana Grant and I had fun posing with each other’s books. Her picture book DISCO BALLS OF THE UNIVERSE manages to be educational and entertaining at the same time. Not easy!
