Fall 2006 Events


Finding this photo from last fall's Slow Days, Fast Friends publication party reminded me that I should post my current events schedule. Most of these presentations will feature Boo's Dinosaur in one way or another, but several are more open-ended opportunities to simply share the fun that I have in making books!

Stop by and say hello :)

Get some east coast dates Erik! :-D
How cool to do a book signing, I haven't gotten to that point yet.

Someday Paige... someday :)

Thanks for the positives. You'll likely get that west coast tour before I'm ever asked to go east. Paint on, paint on!
