Philadelphia Book Festival, this weekend!

May 12th, 2008 | Leave a Comment


This Saturday and Sunday is the Philadelphia Book Festival at the Main Library. I'll apparently be an "event" at the festival itself on Saturday and I hope you can make it over to see whatever it is I'm doing. I'll be on the "Target Children's Stage" at 3:00pm.

Rumor has it that there will be a Q & A session. So come up with the question that you've always wanted to know the answer to. (My favorite color is "rainbow" so don't ask that one.) And then I'll be signing books. They've ordered lots and lots of early copies of the new Roscoe Riley books that will be in stores later this month, as well as all the other stuff.

In addition, sometime on Sunday, not sure when, I'll be signing Shredderman books with Wendelin Van Draanen. This is our very first signing together and I'm pretty excited. We will be at the Children's Book World booth, so check in there and find out what time it's to take place. Then, if you happen to see me, let me know too.

This is all good news, yes. But the other shoe has to drop, right? Well yes indeed. At the same exact moment that I'll be acting all famous and whatever on Saturday, the slightly more talented and much better looking Adam Rex will be doing the same in the Children's Story Hour Room, also at 3pm. So you must decide between us, and we're both taking names…

Here's the link for the festival.
And the link for my little event on Saturday.

We're praying for decent weather, so please come in any case.
