First stops on the world tour

A Family of Readers is coming out this month and already there has been some nice talk about it. BCCB found it "informative and entertaining," PW called it "indispensable" in a boxed review, and blogger Natasha Maw has been underlining her favorite quotes via Twitter and the hashtag #familyofreaders. You should see in the right border here a widget that will allow you to see the cover and read some of it; you can buy it (if you like it) via the widget or through all the usual suspects, from to your favorite indie. On-sale date is September 29th.

Martha Parravano and I will be making a few appearances starting next month to promote the book. On October 6 at 7:00 PM, we'll be signing at Porter Square Books; on the 27th, we will be speaking at the Foundation for Children's Books; the evening of November 2nd brings us to the Cambridge Public Library. I'll provide more details as I know them and hope to meet some of you at one or another of these events.

I've been looking forward to this ever since you blogged about it ages (or so it seems) ago. I ordered it for the library, and we already have a patron hold on it. Luckily, I'm expecting my own personal copy very soon!

Thank you so much for the mention Roger! I am so enjoying tweeting about it that I will be sad when I am finished with the book.k Only a few more sections to go!
