Sun in My Tummy at The Word on the Street

June 12, 2022

The Word on the Street is an outdoor book and magazine festival in Toronto (and other cities). For years, I have wanted to attend, but the timing never worked. This year–after a couple of virtual pandemic years–WOTS was back in person, and for the first time ever I had a chance not only to attend, but also to present one of my new books!

My day had many highlights, but one of the best was finally meeting illustrator Andrea Blinick in person. Here were are signing copies of our book, Sun in My Tummy, at the Ella Minnow Children’s Bookstore table.

Although the skies were threatening rain, we managed to eke out the last bit of sunshine before the drops started to fall. I’m grateful to all the festival organizers, to Pajama Press for making it possible for me to attend (and for publishing the book!), to the hardworking staff of Ella Minnow for setting up a table for book signings on top of everything else they were trying to deal with, and to my little family of supporters who came to cheer me on at my first live event in over two years.
