East Brunswick Education Foundation Bookfair Bonanza!

I had so much fun participating in the East Brunswick Education Foundation Bookfair on Saturday, and I just couldn’t believe how many granparents, parents, students, and teachers were in attendance! What a great job Cathy Genna and the staff of the East Brunswick Barnes & Noble do!

I enjoyed myself so much I’m going back for the South River Public Schools Bookfair on December 6. I’ll be there from 10:00 a.m. to Noon, before heading off for another signing at the delightful Book Garden in Frenchtown, starting at 2:00 p.m. It’s going to be another busy, book-filled day!

Here are a few pictures of some of the wonderful people I met on Saturday—from the lovely little ballerina, whose copy of Sugar White Snow and Evergreens was the first I signed

Some of the best moments of the morning included watching all the children searching the shelves, their arms full of books! And I really enjoyed speaking with students, like this lovely young lady, about writing Pick a Circle, Gather Squares et al., and how this book series celebrates the seasons and farm life based on visits to farms, farm stands, and farmers’ markets in beautiful Hunterdon County, where my family lives.

Go New Jersey agriculture!

What’s up next? I’ll be at the Clinton Book Shop this Friday, November 28, from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. to participate in A Dickens Days book event. (Thank you, Harvey and Rob, for inviting me back!) If you’ve never visited Clinton, it’s a gorgeous town—and the Clinton Book Shop is a great place to browse and pick up holiday gifts.

And speaking of gifts, I just learned I’ll be working alongside the year’s best gift-giver at the Branchburg Sports Complex Breakfast with Santa on Sunday, December 21, from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. Santa will arrive by firetruck and a portion of all proceeds go to benefit the North Branch Fire Department. A light brunch will be served, so bring your Chirstmas wish list and I’ll bring the Sugar White Snow maple syrup!
