There IS still safety in this world. Know that even the smallest of us are strong enough to stand up to hatred and fear when we stand together. You are safe with Owly and me and all of our friends. Love will always win, my friends.
One of my absolutely favorite podcasts is the children’s book podcast called All the Wonders! I actually only recently discovered it thanks to Jerzy, Ben, & Zack and the Galaxy of Super Adventure. But since I’m in the middle of working on the new Owly book, I’ve listened to all the episodes (nearly 300!) over the last few months. I’ve learned so much and I’ve gotten to know so many of our fellow children’s book authors and illustrators. Host Matthew Winner is a wonderful Teacher Librarian with a passionate love of Children’s books and comics and it was an absolute delight to talk to him about Owly! I hope everyone enjoys it!
Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, September 2-5, Owly and I will be part of the incredible gathering of comics and pop-culture in my hometown of Atlanta, Georgia known simply as, Dragon Con! Navigate your way through the costumes and craziness and you’ll find me in Comic Artists Alley. We’ve moved to a larger space of on the third floor of building two the AmericasMart this year and I’m sure it’s gonna be great!!
We’re so honored to be a part of the DragonCon family and we’ll be there all 4 days so be sure to stop by and say hi! I’ll even be on a couple of panels this year, All Ages Pages Saturday at 10:00am and Graphic Novels: Ride the Tide Sunday at 2:30pm.
But the main event for me will be The Big Owly Hootenanny on Sunday at 10:00am! Join us for an amazing hour of fun! We’ll sing, craft, listen to an Owly story, and learn how to draw like a cartoonist. You don’t have to be a kid to join us, just young at heart!
Be sure to check the schedule for more information. We can’t wait to see you there! ^,^
