I’m thrilled to be a guest at the 13th annual Claire’s Day, Northwest Ohio’s largest children’s book festival. The event will take place this Saturday, May 17, at the Maumee-Toledo-Lucas County Public Library in Maumee, Ohio. And best of all, it’s free!
The festival features children’s book authors and illustrators from throughout the Midwest, plus a crafts area, teen tent, live music, and more. A highlight of the day is the C.A.R.E. Awards (Claire’s Awards for Reading Excellence) given to children nominated by their principals as being the most improved readers in their schools.
As part of the event, I’ll be doing presentations on Friday at 2 Toledo-area schools. I’m looking forward to talking with all the students, and will post some pictures and a write-up after the events.
