I'd have to say that pretty much every artist in NYC knows Books of Wonder-- the, the, THE premiere children's book store in all of NYC. It's a veritable mecca of inspiration, awe, and amazement. A place to stop when you need that jump start of creativity or a place to find the perfect gift for ANYONE, be it yourself, a child, an adult or fellow creative person.
And if you've ever dreamed of writing your own picture book-- Books of Wonder is where you've dreamed of having an event to show it to the world! Mr. Willems has done it a thousand times... sometimes with a beard, sometimes without:
And this weekend, Saturday May 23rd from 12:00-2:00 it's my turn (sans beard) to take the stage to read 1000 Times No. But I'm not going at it alone. I'll be there with 5 other awesome authors, like Chris Raschka (Charlie Parker Played Be-Bop is a favorite around Warburton Secret Headquarters), James Yang (Puzzlehead), William Low (Machines Go To Work), Lynn Curlee (Trains), and Valeri Gorbachev (The Missing Chick). Even if you don't like me or my book (as IF...), you're virtually guaranteed to like one of these authors and their work!
So come on into Manhattan this Saturday at noon and stop by the coolest book store in town! All the information you need is right HERE!
