Bookish Happenings in New England

It’s a big week for KidLit events in New England.  For example, did you know…

…that author Jo Knowles is speaking at the Hartland Public Library this Wednesday at 7:00pm? Jo is one of the smartest, nicest people I know, and also…she says there will be brownies.  If you’re in the Vermont/New Hampshire Upper Valley, you should go see her tomorrow night.

…that Loree Griffin Burns, the author of TRACKING TRASH, has a brand new book out in the world? She’s throwing a party to launch THE HIVE DETECTIVES: CHRONICLE OF A HONEY BEE CATASTROPHE tonight from 6-8 at the Beaman Memorial Library in West Boylston, MA. Her new book is stunning and smart and wonderful (and I gushed more about it here) and will be available to purchase and have signed. All proceeds from her launch go to benefit the library, too. How cool is that?  If you’re on Facebook, you can visit the event page here, and let Loree know if you’re coming.

…that the fabulous New England SCBWI Conference is this weekend?  Okay…so maybe you already knew that.  I’m getting ready for presentations Saturday (on Skype author visits) and Sunday (a blogging panel with Jo Knowles and Carrie Jones).  Will I see you in Fitchburg, too?
