Author Day at The Hebrew Academy OC

I had so much fun at The Hebrew Academy Orange County yesterday! The kids were awesome and full of questions. A big thank you to Michelle, Claudia, and the rest of the staff for the warm welcome!

I got to talk about beetles, Taiwan, and writing. I’m positive there were many budding writers in the group!

Then I got to spend the afternoon at the Children’s Author Festival at the Huntington Beach Library. It’s always a fun time talking to kids, parents, and other writers. Can’t wait for next year!

Author Day and Children’s Author Festival in Huntington Beach

I’m excited to again participate at the Children’s Author Festival in Huntington Beach next Tuesday 1/29! It’s at the Huntington Beach Library from 2:30pm – 5:00pm and I’ll be there along with 19 other authors. It’s put together by the Friends of the Children’s Library and it’s a wonderful event. Student writers and illustrators will be awarded as well!

I’ll be giving away swag like Superbeetle temporary tattoos, stickers, and coloring pages like this one!

In the morning, I’ll be at the Hebrew Academy in Huntington Beach for Author Day where I’ll talk to grades K-2 on becoming a writer. Each class will receive their own Superbeetle. Last year’s Author Day was a blast and I can’t wait for this year! I’m sure there are lots of future writers at the school.

Author Day and Children’s Author Festival in Huntington Beach

What a fantastic day! I had so much fun participating in Author Day at Hope View Elementary School. Look what I was greeted with first thing:

The students made me an awesome banner! I love it!

I talked about being a writer and things I wish I knew before I started writing. The kids were funny, smart, and so sweet. I had such a blast! Each class received their own pet Superbeetle.

Then it was the Children’s Author Festival in the afternoon at the Huntington Beach Public Library.

It was great to meet other children’s authors, like Caroline Hatton. Her books are gorgeously illustrated and she has a beetle book too!

Thank you, Friends of the Children’s Huntington Beach Public Library and Hope View Elementary School! What a great day!

I’ll also have my first school visit on the morning of January 30th at Hope View Elementary School in Huntington Beach! I’m so excited to talk to grades K – 3 on what it’s like to be an author and how they can write their own stories. I’ll also be selling copies of Superbeetle as well as giving each classroom their own Superbeetle!
