Come to Children's Day at the Brooklyn Book Festival! http://www.brooklynbookfestival.org/2015/childrens-day

I almost fainted when I read that I'm going to be on stage with the Stinky Cheese Man himself.

12:00 PM--Young Reader Stage (MetroTech Commons) What’s in a Name?: Lovable, laughable, and unforgettable, favorite chapter book characters always have the best names and the most engaging personalities. 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).
