NCTE, November 17-18, 2017

Hi everyone,

For anyone going to NCTE in St. Louis next month, I hope you’ll come see me.

On Friday, November 17, Mary Jo Fresch and I will give a Scholastic presentation from 12:30 – 1:45 titled “7 keys to writing success: Changing how students research.”

Following that we’ll sign from 1:45 – 2:15 our new book, 7 KEYS TO RESEARCH FOR WRITING SUCCESS at the Scholastic booths.

Saturday from 11:00 – 12:00 I’ll sign A PLACE TO START A FAMILY, my new book from Charlesbridge at their booth.

From 12:30 – 1:45 I’ll sit at my table for the ticketed Authors Luncheon.

Later that day, time to be announced, I’ll sign galleys of CRAWLY SCHOOL FOR BUGS, my new picture book of poetry from Boyds Mills Press.

Hi everyone,

Sandy Asher would like for you know about an event coming up that might be of interest to you. Here’s the scoop. . I know Sandy (and who doesn’t) so we know this will be a great event or she wouldn’t be involved in it. If you have questions, contact Lindsay Bandy

On other matters, my schedule is now in place for NCTE this fall in St. Louis. On Friday, November 17, Mary Jo Fresch and I will make a one hour fifteen minute presentation about how to prepare students to research their subject before writing about it. Immediately following, we’ll sign our new Scholastic book, which will be out just in time for the conference, 7 KEYS TO RESEARCH FOR WRITING SUCCESS. Here’s a look at the cover.

On Saturday I’ll sign copies of NOW YOU SEE THEM, NOW YOU DON’T at the Charlesbridge booth from 11:00 – 12:00 then go to the Authors’ Luncheon from 12:30 – 2:15. I’m not speaking at that event but I’ll be at a sponsored table (Thanks Charlesbridge!) with free books for ticketed guests who join me for lunch. NOW YOU SEE THEM is one of NCTE’s picks this year for Notable Books of Poetry for Children. My next title with Charlesbridge, A PLACE TO START A FAMILY, won’t be out yet but promotional pieces will be available. The pub date is January 6.
