If you’re somewhere near and can join the fun, the address is 4653 S. Campbell Ave. Springfield, MO 65810. Phone:(417) 882-0714. The program is free and open to the public. We’ll start at 3:00 and finish by 4:30. Barnes & Noble will be there to sell copies of NOW YOU SEE THEM, NOW YOU DON’T plus a few other titles and naturally I’ll be happy to sign them.
We’ve divided the program into three parts. I’ll take the first thirty minutes to introduce the new book and read from it. During the next third, folks from Dickerson Park Zoo will display some of the animals that appear in the book and talk about natural camouflage. Kids will take us out on a high note by reading their own poems or some of mine, and young brothers and sisters can color pictures that will be put on display for a week after the event.
