Coming Soon!

I have a handful of events for you, but before I get to the linkage, I wanted to post a quick reminder of our first-ever Finding Wonderland Toon Thursday Contest. Photo of grand prize coming soon.

Okay. If you're going to be in the San Francisco area tomorrow evening, Cody's Books on Fourth Street in Berkeley is presenting a reading by Gennifer Choldenko, whose new book is entitled If A Tree Falls at Lunch Period. Choldenko is the author of the Newbery Honor Book Al Capone Does My Shirts.
