Children’s Literary Cafe: January 10th!

Out of the ashes rises the Children’s Literary Cafe once more.  Observe and adore our latest offering for this coming Saturday.

The Children’s Literary Café at the new Children’s Center at 42 Street is pleased to announce our event on Saturday, January 10 at 2:00 p.m.:

Graphic Elements in Biography and Non-Fiction

Join C.M. Butzer (Gettysburg), Meghan McCarthy (Seabiscuit, the Wonder Horse), Sean Qualls (Before John Was a Jazz Giant), and Dan Yaccarino (The Fantastic Undersea Life of Jacques Cousteau) as they discuss their work melding picture book and graphic novel elements with biographical and informational subjects.

The Children’s Literary Café is a monthly gathering of adults who are fans of children’s literature.   Professionals, librarians, authors, illustrators, publishers, booksellers, teachers, and anyone else interested in the field are welcome to attend our meetings.   The Literary Café provides free Advanced Readers galleys, a rotating series of talks with professionals in the field, and great conversation.

    Fuse, won’t you please take this show on the road? I can guarantee you all a Texas-sized crowd if you’d just come on down to Austin…

  2. Why are you only giving us 4 days notice?! Betsy! Ah, well, it’s probably for the best. I usually turn incoherent around rock stars.

  3. I figured people might forget before now. Should I do a week’s notice in the future? That is also possible.
