Santa Monica Library reading Main St. October 15th

This should be really fun!  I was asked by the head librarian Celia Carroll at the Main Street Branch of the Santa Monica Libraries to do an event.  That event is to do a Reading / Signing / Q & A / Color your own Sparky coloring page.  It will hopefully be a big and fun event.  I hope everyone reading this will come!  They will be advertising the vent in their October Newsletter and there will be Sparky posters in the Library for a week leading up to the event.  I will be coming from 4 readings and a book fair at Ocean Charter School that day so it will be a VERY busy day for Sparky and me.  Wish us luck and we hope to see you there!!!

7th Annual West Hollywood Book Fair Sept. 28th

7th annual West Hollywood Book Fair (called WeHo)
Sunday September 28th
Gillian 2 hour signing booth F7 & F8 from 10:00AM to noon
All day booth E42-B on "Authors Row" noon to 6:00PM

A great time was had by all!  Look how cute the kids are coloring Sparky.  They are concentrating so hard.  All day we had kids usually 2 at a time sitting and coloring at my booth.  I had forgotten to bring crayons but they let me use a box from the kids section of the fair.  I am so glad I did.  It made the day for me to see the kiddies color all day!  Oh, and I sold some books and met some very nice people as well.

Talk soon,

SUPER exciting news for Sparky the Wonderfish!!!  Today we booked a reading and signing at the Barnes & Noble on Pico Blvd. at the Westside Pavilion for November 8th at 2:00PM.
They will be advertising it leading up to that time and if you are reading this now or know someone with kids it should really be a BLAST!!!  They think a lot of people will be there.
That particular Barnes & Noble has the largest children's section in LA, from what I am told.
