Celebrating Dr. Seuss' birthday by reading Wild About Books at Barnes and Noble in Vancouver, Washington, with their fabulous event planner Bjorn Sorensen. His official job title, "Community Business Development Manager," gives no hint of the way he can bring in a crowd, ramp up enthusiasm, and make an author feel awesome.
There is a new Marc Brown/Judy Sierra book in the works—a prequel to Wild About Books. It tells how all the animals built their unique zoo community (hint: a lot of math and many construction vehicles are involved). The book is tentatively scheduled for fall 2019.
I am a children's book author and folklorist based in Portland, Oregon.
