Brooklyn Celebrates It's Author-Illustrators

NEW! Miss Brooklyn, Keelie Sheridan, has joined our celebration.

An online article from Examiner.com.

This idea was in my mind for a long, long time. Last Fall my idea caught the fancy of a few others who agreed to become a creative collective.


Our collective is made up of professional women who leave an historical record in the field of children's literature and art. And the merchants who work alongside the author-illustrators bringing their books and art to the community.


March 2010 is our WOMEN'S HISTORY MONTH CELEBRATION!

Six Author-Illustrators.
Three Bookstores and a Gallery.
Book readings and signings.
An Exhibition.

This is great! I don't think I have seen this done before. This is also great celebration for all of us chauvinists--Brooklyn chauvinists that is.

Melanie!!
This is such a great idea!! I am going to try to make it, but at least I am going to write something about it for Examiner.com. I am doing a series on independent bookstores and I am going to feature these three bookstores and your event.

Also I would love to have you be a guest on my radio show on the 4th Thursday of this month. Let me know if you can be on. Then you can publicize this!! Meghan is a good friend of mine too.:)
