Spring is somehow here…

Wow, what a season this winter was!  The intensity of the political landscape has overwhelmed everything else, for the most part.  Mose and Lew and I have spent a lot of time making posters and phone calls, and attending demonstrations, and canvassing, and attending postcard-writing parties.  It’s been a scary time for the world, but in a funny way, this has all been energizing season for me, personally, and it’s given the boys a much deeper, more real understanding of the political world, and why we all need to be engaged.

While none of that is over, as we head into Spring I’m shifting my focus a little bit (though still making my calls each day, no fear!)  to BOOKS!  Because I have three books coming out (THREE BOOKS!)  in April and May, and I’m excited and proud, and ready to travel and tell the world.

April 11, Charlie and Mouse will be out!

And then, on May 2, The Forever Garden will be out!

And then, on May 30, Orphan Island will be out!

Things are already getting pretty fun.  All three books are Junior Library Guild Selections, and a few starred reviews have rolled in. Now  I’m planning events and looking forward to sharing the books with actual kids!

We’ll be hitting the road in a few months, and I hope to see YOU, somewhere…
