I'm honored to be moderating a panel of terrific authors at the Brooklyn Book Festival Children's Day on Saturday, September 19th, at 12pm, at the Young Reader Stage (MetroTech Commons) in downtown Brooklyn. Here's the panel description:
WHAT A CHARACTER!: Lovable, laughable, and unforgettable, favorite chapter book characters always have the most engaging personalities--and the most memorable names. Authors Abby Hanlon (Dory Fantasmagory), Lenore Look (Alvin Ho and Ruby Lu), and Jon Scieszka (Frank Einstein) come together to discuss their inspiration behind creating--and naming--their beloved characters. Moderated by Anica Rissi (Anna, Banana).
