My Woo-Bin Author Visit

That's how you pronounce Woburn, Massachusetts if you're a member of Red Sox Nation. I'll be appearing at the Woburn Public Library this Wednesday evening, 3/19, at 7 p.m. You're welcome to come and have a peek if you're in the area or interested in sampling my author visits to schools and libraries. Here's what the local paper is saying about the event
Award-winning children’s and young adult author Mitali Perkins will be visiting the Woburn Public Library on Wednesday, March 19, at 7 p.m. for an evening presentation and discussion on what it means to “live between cultures.”

Presented by the Friends of the Woburn Public Library, Perkins’ appearance is free and open to the public. A book sale and book signing will take place after the presentation, with books provided by Book Ends of Winchester at a discount to attendees.
Wow, no pressure. I'd better be good.

The poster above is provided by the Pike School librarians, who have a wall of fake READ posters featuring visiting children's book authors reading favorite books -- which I thought was such a great idea I asked for permission to share it on my blog. I picked Edwidge Danticat's Behind the Mountains, by the way, a YA novel I loved.
