I have been asked to speak on Saturday, July 31 at the Norfolk Public Library’s 16th Annual Literature Festival in Norfolk, Nebraska. I will be giving a writing workshop for kids in the morning and will be speaking to teachers and librarians about books and writing in the afternoon.
I have never been to Nebraska, and am excited to fly into Omaha next week. My picture book That Book Woman is a 2011 Golden Sower Award nominee (which is the state Nebraska award). Other award nominees will be at the festival too, including Deborah Hopkinson and Tony Varrato.
If any of you live in Nebraska, or are interesting in attending the festival, please email Karen Drevo at firstname.lastname@example.org or call her at 402-844-2108.
The Norfolk Public Library is located at 308 W. Prospect Avenue in Norfolk, Nebraska. Hope to see you there!
