Mexico's Ancient City of Teotihuacan Exhibit at the De Young Museum, San Francisco

I can't wait to see the new exhibit at the De Young Museum in San Francisco about Teotihuacan, whose ruins lie just outside Mexico City, and is one of the most fascinating places I've ever visited. Opening September 30th, Teotihuacan: City of Water, City of Fire features never-before-seen archaeological discoveries and captivating artwork from one of the largest and most important cities of the ancient Americas. The exhibit will be up until February 11, 2018.
I am reminded of my visit to Teotihuacan twenty years ago, climbing the pyramids and exploring the ruins as I  researched my book City of the Gods: Mexico's Ancient City of Teotihuacan, which is illustrated with photos by Richard Hewett. You may be able to find the book in the library, or you can read it online. It is available as a Kindle book on Amazon.
Here is a wonderful video giving a preview of the exhibit at the De Young Museum:

Book Signing at the ORANGE COUNTY CHILDREN'S BOOK FESTIVAL

In the SCBWI booth at the Orange County Children's Book Festival with author Henry Hertz
On Sunday, October 1, thousands of families thronged the campus of Orange Coast College in Costa Mesa, California, for the annual book festival. Dozens of white tents lined the walks and stages for performers and storytellers were strategically located.
Tents and books were everywhere!
I spent a busy hour at the SCBWI booth talking to children and their parents, giving away postcards, and signing books. I shared the table with author Henry Hertz, festively costumed in a pirate outfit to go with one of his books. It was a fun day. I enjoyed talking with Francesca Ruzackas and Ernesto Cisneros of the SoCal SCBWI in the booth and thank Francesca for coordinating the the signings in the booth.
Clifford the Big Red Dog was one of many performers who greeted guests at the festival
