Book Festivals

I just recently got back from two wonderful Book Festivals. The first, Bookmarks Festival , was a real treat. I got to met some of my heroes and new heroes including Grace Lin, Javaka Steptoe, Michael Fry, and Matt Tavares. The school visits were also terrific. I just continue to be impressed with number of bilingual schools. I certainly would have loved that when I was growing up.

The second was the Brooklyn Book Festival which was like a big publishing reunion. I could go on and on about both, but instead I'll post some of my favorite pictures.
