Children's Book Festival

Now I know that the current weather forecast for Saturday says rain, but in the spirit of optimism I thought I would post about a nifty event happening over on the Common this Saturday from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM rain or shine--the Boston Globe's Children's Book Festival.

They have really great authors scheduled--my highlights would be seeing Jane O'Connor who writes the Fancy Nancy books and Jarrett J. Krosoczka who wrote Punk Farm and is, according to Alison, the children's book buyer at Wellesley Booksmith, a really fantastic guy (you can read about the event Wellesley Booksmith did with him here).

If you go let me know how it is--my Saturday will be spent working here at the store!
