Turning grass into lawn…

At the Barnes Children's Literature Festival (this Sunday at 10am) I'll read some from my picture book There's A Bug On My Arm That Won't Let Go, and we'll do some drawing and laughing. I want to talk about how memories can give you the start of an idea for a story and how picture books can help you see the invisible. You'll have to book a ticket, but it's downhill from there. Bring your drawing chops.

 Henry Miller should have tried mowing hundreds of acres of grass in the blazing hot sun throughout an entire childhood, and then we'll see if he finds a blade of grass so very interesting.
