>A Family of Readers is coming out this month and already there has been some nice talk about it. BCCB found it “informative and entertaining,” PW called it “indispensable” in a boxed review, and blogger Natasha Maw has been underlining her favorite quotes via Twitter and the hashtag #familyofreaders. You should see in the right border here a widget that will allow you to see the cover and read some of it; you can buy it (if you like it) via the widget or through all the usual suspects, from Amazon.com to your favorite indie. On-sale date is September 29th.
Martha Parravano and I will be making a few appearances starting next month to promote the book. On October 6 at 7:00 PM, we’ll be signing at Porter Square Books; on the 27th, we will be speaking at the Foundation for Children’s Books; the evening of November 2nd brings us to the Cambridge Public Library. I’ll provide more details as I know them and hope to meet some of you at one or another of these events.
