Ohhh!!! These sound great! I'll have to figure out the schedule. Sunday is a no, but Saturday may work. I'll let you know if we go!

I'm beginning to feel like a children's literature groupie because I attend so many kidlit events.

So sorry you can't make it to the Carle Museum and Michelson Galleries on Sunday. I would love to meet you.

How lucky you are! I do wish I could go--one of my favorite moments as a children's bookseller was when Barry Moser came to read and chat and sign books.
