Zoo of Impossible Animals at the Author’s Festival in Huntington Beach

I’m pleased to announce that I’ve been chosen as one of the featured presenters at the Authors Festival, an annual event sponsored by the Friends of the Children’s Library in Huntington Beach, CA. I was selected to speak on The Zoo of Impossible Animals (and maybe some Shakespeare!) for about 250 students at Saints Simon and Jude School on January 31. Thank you to Gail Page, the event chair, for all your help.

And just a reminder: The Zoo of Impossible Animals would make an IDEAL Christmas present for the children in your life. If you order today, there is still time to get a copy for the holiday!
