I’ll be at Fairyland June 3rd 2023


Its been so long since I was last at Fairyland for their annual book events. This year I’ll be there along with 30 other authors and illustrators like Kim Ko, Nidhi Chanani, Christian Robinson, Angela Dalton, and the Leticia Hernandez-Linares who wrote “Alejandria Fights Back!”

Come meet me in person at the Children’s Fairyland Book Festival on Saturday, June 3! It’s a kid-lit event that brings Bay Area children’s literature authors and illustrators together with families for a full day of read-alouds and more. Alejandria Fights Back (Leticia Hernandez-Linares/Rise Home Stories project), We Are Yoga (Jill Guerra), and Sam! (Dani Gabriel) will be available to buy from The Collective Oakland, and I’ll be happy to autograph it for your kiddo! 

Tickets are available now: fairyland.org/book-festival

Dig this? Here’s a post about “We Are Yoga” by Jill Guerra and a post about the cover of “Sam!” by Dani Gabriel.

UnPeeled reading w/ Bananas

April 23rd I’ll be reading for “UnPeeled” for a local children’s organization called “BANANAS” who helped me and my family out a bunch when my kids were their youngest. If you’re in the Bay, come to Fairyland and hear myself and Angela Dalton will be reading that day.

Fairyland fundraiser-Sept 26th


Fam, I’ve been invited to read aloud for Celebrity Story time, an online benefit for Children’s Fairyland! They have big plans to better represent *all* families at the park w/ a digital library. And they’re celebrating the 70th anniversary of Fairyland which I went to as a child and took my son to. I’ve also had the chance to read at “Turn the Page”. An annual event held at Fairyland to share great stories and Bay Area storytellers with their loyal attendees and supporters.
