Winter is beginning to add a nip to the air. Time to hibernate, right? Not! November is looking like the busiest month ever - including the presentation of the Crystal Kite Award on November 8th at the E. PA SCBWI Fall Festival near Philadelphia. What an honor! I'm looking forward to it...and a little nervous about that speech...

Plenty of other festivals, bookfairs, school visits - and a special event at Musehouse Center for the Arts, Philadelphia, on Nov. 15th. All details below.

Perhaps I'll see some of you here and there.
