I’ll be at the ALA Annual Conference in Chicago June 24 and 25th. Come visit me for a signing at the Albert Whitman Booth on Saturday and at the PopTalk Stage on Sunday where I’ll be taking about the importance of location in fiction with fellow Class of 2k17 members, Leah and Jodi!

Kit and I are coming to Portland on May 22! Janet Johnson, Heidi Schultz, and I will be talking about books and writing at Annie Blooms Bookstore at 7:00 pm. I hope you’ll join us!

Three middle grade authors talk about the real-world inspiration for the characters, friendships, and adventures in their books. They’ll discuss their writing process and how life inspires their creativity, leaving time for a Q&A session with the audience.
