SLOCRA Evening With Authors and Illustrators in Shell Beach, CA

SLOCRA Dinner Authors with our certificates of appreciation: L-R, F.C. Shaw, Lee Wardlaw, Joe Cepeda, Allison Crotzer Kimmel, Caroline Arnold, Sharon Lovejoy
On March 27 I had the honor to be one of six children's book authors to speak at the San Luis Obispo CRA annual evening with authors and illustrators at the Spyglass Inn in Shell Beach, California, with its beautiful view of the California coast. I thank Michael Shaw and his committee for inviting me and for doing such a wonderful job of organizing the evening! It was great to be part of this celebration of books and reading and I loved hearing from the other authors and illustrators and learning about their careers. (We each had about five minutes to tell about ourselves.) And as an extra bonus, we had the chance to sell our books and autograph them at the end of the evening. I thank my publisher, PictureWindow Books for donating copies of my new book A Day and Night in the Rain Forest for members who sat at my table. The dinner was delicious and my husband and I had a very comfortable stay at the Spyglass Inn.
