Upcoming Events for Lady Liberty: A Biography

When Doreen Rappaport and I arrived at Little Shop of Stories in Decatur, Georgia on Wednesday, we were greeted by this gigantic frog, sitting in the window, reading Lady Liberty: A Biography to a smaller frog. They seemed to like it. I think they could relate to Lady Liberty, because they're also green, and made of copper.
Here are some of the other places I'll be during the next couple weeks:

May 10 2:00-4:00 Book Ends, Winchester, MA, slide presentation on the making of Lady Liberty: A Biography, and book signing

May 17 12:00-2:00 Barnes & Noble, Newington, NH, reading and book signing

May 18 12:30-2:30 Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art, slide presentation on the making of Lady Liberty: A Biography, and book signing

Monhegan Library

Here are some photos from one of my favorite library events of 2007- the reading/signing I did at Monhegan Library on Monhegan Island, in Maine.

note: I brought the illustration I was working on to the library that day, to show people an illustration in progress. If you look closely, you can see the partially-painted picture from Lady Liberty displayed on the easel. The final illustration is now on my web site.
