The San Diego Children’s Book Festival is this Sunday, May 4, 10:00-4:30. It’s a free event for families and teens. I’ll be on the teen panel at 3:00 in the Library Community Room and signing HONK IF YOU HATE ME afterward. Other authors and illustrators there will include David Shannon, Gerald McDermott, Janell Cannon, Bruce Hale, and Kadir Nelson; they will be doing readings and signings. There will also be a continuous story time, magic, games, music, crafts, food, and drink. This is San Diego’s first book fest, and we’re hoping it’ll be a success. San Diegans, come on by. And spread the word!
Location: Nobel Athletic Complex & North University Community Branch Library, 8820 Judicial Drive, San Diego, CA 92121 (near University Towne Center). For specific events and times, go to www.sandiegobookfestival.org.
