The seventh annual Festival of Books in Tucson provided Arizona BookPALS Coordinator, Ellen Dean, lots of ideas to share with Arizona volunteers. Hearing from children’s authors at the Tucson Festival of Books was illuminating. Three children’s authors discussed what it is like to write a series of books, the challenges and rewards.
In attendance was Betty Birney, author of the “Humphrey the Hamster”; Ursula Vernon, author and illustrator of the “Dragonbreath”; Doreen Cronin, author of “Click, Clack,Moo, Cows that Type” and “Diary of a Worm” and Drew Daywalt, author of “The Day the Crayons Quit”. Listen to some of them discuss the writing process.
