On Saturday, June 19th I have been invited as a guest author at a fundraiser for Rolling Readers, which is a wonderful program that pairs volunteers with struggling readers. (It's kind of a schwanky thing...wine, cheese and such...)
Anyway, I was very honored to be asked. Janelle Cannon (Stellaluna)
will be there. AND Gerald McDermott!!!
I heart Gerald McDermott. (I am secretly hoping to sit next to him so I cal tell him how much kids love his books. I mean, he probably already knows, but I've read his stuff to kids a BUNCH of times and well, it just really resonates with children.
So, the dress for this event says, "Creative Cocktail Attire."
What the heck is that?
Usually, when I appear as an author, it is as the Story Queen....cape, velvet gown, plastic crown....but somehow that doesn't seem quite right for such a schwanky event. (And I don't think any of us are doing a reading, per se).
The question is: Tiara or no Tiara?
I'm leaning towards a rather tasteful tiara, maybe something black and simple in terms of clothes.....
But is that just over the top?
You tell me.
