The Chupacabra at the Bay Area Book Festival!

Join me this June 3rd at the Bay Area Book Festival, I’ll be very happy to see you there!
I’ll be participating in two sessions:

 

  • June 3, 11:00AM-12:00PM. FREE at the San Francisco Chronicle Stage in the Park
    Writers and Artists Whose Books You Love, Part 1: A Picture Book Extravaganza for Kids and Their Adults
    (with Ana Aranda, Jon Agee, Gennifer Choldenko, William Joyce, Michael Slack, moderated by Alex Green) Calling both children and adults to celebrate the joy of reading on a lovely Saturday afternoon in the big tent on the grass in the park. No one’s ever too old to read a great story—even if it’s meant for kids. (Aren’t we all still kids inside?) These all-star picture-book creators share some of the key moments and inspirations from their journeys as visual storytellers that both kids and adults will love.
    Saturday,
  • Saturday, June 3, 1:15-1:45PM. FREE at the Showtime Stage
    Ana Aranda Presents The Chupacabra Ate the Candelabra
     Ana is a Mexican artist and mural painter, and are we ever glad she created the illustrations for this tale about three goats and the legendary chupacabra, whose favorite food is not what those goats expect! It’s a hilarious, laugh-out-loud story with vibrant illustrations to love.
