“Wiseman tells her tragic tale alternating the voices of Natan and Elena. It is a heart-rending tale based on actual events…. Readers will need the Kleenex for this one.” – Kirkus Reviews
Guess where Pamela, Kathryn, and I were last night? Here are some hints to the answer:
Look at the pretty holiday decorations, the funny sign, this all points to… the team at McNally Robinson Booksellers!
Yesterday, Shane Peacock was invited to talk about his Boy Sherlock Holmes series at McNally Robinson Booksellers. The store has a book club for children and they had just finished reading Eye of the Crow (some were almost finished reading Death in the Air too). This was a great opportunity for the club members (and their parents) to ask Shane some questions. He brought in his laptop and we hooked it up to the projector to show his book trailers.
Shane did a dramatic reading from each of his books after showing the individual book trailers. Below, Shane reads an excerpt from Vanishing Girl:
Thank you to the book club readers and their parents for coming out to meet Shane Peacock. Thank you once again to Nicola and to the wonderful staff for making the event a success!
Note from Tundra: We hope people are happy to see pictures of themselves on Talking with Tundra, but if you would like your photo removed, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.
This was a special visit because Nan discussed, sang, read, and signed her debut picture book, Bird Child.
Here is a short clip where Nan brought out her guitar and taught the children a song.
Then, she read from Bird Child to show how Eliza helped Lainey get her own wings to fly.
Nan even came prepared with a craft! She brought in foam birds, ribbons, googly eyes, markers, glue, glitter, jewels, and feathers. The children made holiday bird ornaments.
Here is one of the glittery bird ornaments. This one is only half finished. The artist proceeded to add lots of pretty little jewels.
If you were not able to make it to the event, Nan did sign copies of Bird Child that will be available at McNally Robinson Booksellers on a first come, first serve basis. Thank you once again to Nicola and to the staff for making the event a success!
