Halloween Week Story Times

IMG_3122.jpegStory Time at Greenville Elementary Book Fair, Scarsdale NY

When my daughter was in elementary school, I never missed a chance to volunteer during the annual book fair, so it’s always a pleasure to visit school book fairs today with a spirited reading of Go To Sleep, Little Creep. The bright young creatures at Greenville Elementary listened to the author carefully, but howled every wolfgirl howl, bloopblooped every gill mama lullabye and booed every baby ghost boo with glee. Thanks for reading with me, for asking your questions about making books and for inviting me to sign your copies to you!

When Katonah NY’s Halloween Parade was rained out, Gretchen and Katie and the rest of our great bookstore family at Little Joe’s Books┬áhosted an instant Indoor Halloween Parade up in the kids reading room. Invited to come and read at the last minute, I was out the door and heading up the highway to Katonah before you could say, “We’ve had a wild and woolly night, now give daddy one more bite!”

If you are walking Katonah with your family, don’t miss the bookstore – you might find me in the fiction or the kids stuff, you might find my wife in the excellent cookbook shelves! Local indie bookstores are obviously part of what make our Hudson River Valley Towns home!

Just a few of the treats on display at Little Joe’s in Katonah – great books, great coffee, great people!
