Let the Wild Rumpus Begin!

This Saturday, April 14, at 1:00 pm, I will be signing books (and possibly chatting, reading, or whatever seems appropriate) at Wild Rumpus in Minneapolis. The featured books will be The Obsidian Blade and What Boys Really Want. We will also have copies of Minnesota Book Award finalist The Big Crunch on hand. Please come if you can!

Wild Rumpus, for those of you who have not experienced this fabulous shop, is one of the two best children's bookstores in the known universe. (The other best kidlit bookstore in the universe is The Red Balloon Bookshop in St. Paul, where I'll be doing a signing on May 11th.)

Last year it was strawberry jam.
After the Wild Rumpus event, I'll be heading to St. Paul for the Minnesota Book Awards Gala, where I will attempt to win another statue. What flavor will the statue be this year? I do not know, but I covet it all the same. 

If I don't win, it'll still be a great evening.  The other finalists in the Young People's Literature category—The Books of Elsewhere: Spellbound by Jacqueline West, The Tanglewood Terror by Kurtis Scaletta, and With or Without You by Brian Farrey—all deserve to win, too.

The event is nearly sold out, but as of yesterday they had a few tickets left.
