On Wednesday, August 6, from 5 - 8:30 p.m. I'll be back at the Oakdale Farmer's Market with books and art.
On Saturday, August 16, I'll have a booth at the Wood Colony Country Fair. Wood Colony is an agricultural neighborhood just outside Modesto. They have been threatened with annexation and development despite a long and rich history, socially and agriculturally. During the event, between 10:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m., you can tour farms, visit the local school where food, arts, crafts and other fun stuff will be happening. I'll be selling my book, along with some art and probably a few giveaways for the kids.
On Saturday, September 6, I get to share my book with teachers and librarians in Fresno at a special "shmooze" put on by Nor Cal SCBWI.
Later in September, I have a whole weekend in Sacramento planned. Its still tentative, but I hope to have a booth at the Farm to Fork Festival on Capitol Mall on September 27. Its an all day affair with vendors, music, cooking, a kids' zone and more.
On the following day, September 28, Sacramento's Fairytale Town is holding its ScholarShare Book Festival! I'm scheduled for a presentation at 1:00 p.m., with signing afterwards. I participated in this event a couple of years ago with Over in the Valley. Its a fun day for youngsters to see lots of authors and new books!
Then, back to Modesto the following weekend. At our local Barnes and Noble, I'll be having a signing/sharing event Saturday, October 4 at noon. More info to come on that.
Next, I'll be participating in the Great Valley Book Fest in Manteca on Saturday, October 18, between 10 and 4. Tons of authors from up and down the valley will be there! This is for authors of ALL kinds of books, from kids to adults. So bring the whole family!
That same night, I'll be racing back to Modesto to participate in the Northern California Women's Music Festival, which will feature local women musicians, artists and poets. So exciting!
I'm sure that's not the end of it... so stay tuned.
