Kate DiCamillo, Peter Brown and ... Jon Scieszka!

My library -- the Takoma Park Maryland Library -- is tiny but we're now pretty mighty, thanks to our great partnership with Politics & Prose Bookstore in nearby Washington, D.C. Because of that partnership, we've got a whole slate of amazing authors who will be coming to my library in the next couple of months.

First up -- tonight, in fact! -- is picture book creator Peter Brown, who will be here at 7 p.m. talking about his latest book, My Teacher Is a Monster! (No, I Am Not). Stay tuned for a report on Peter's talk in my next blogpost.

Tomorrow, Friday August 29, Kate the Great -- Kate DiCamillo -- will be speaking in our auditorium (in the Takoma Park Community Center) at 7:30. Kate is one of the headliners at the National Book Festival on Saturday (August 30) at the Washington Convention Center. But we got her for Friday night, and she'll be talking about her newest book, LeRoy Ninker Saddles Up as well as her two Newbery Medal-winning books, The Tale of Despereaux and Flora & Ulysses.

We've then got a raft of other authors coming, including Dork Diaries author Rachel Renee Russell, who will unveil Book No. 8 in the best-selling series on Sept. 30 at 7:30 p.m., and many many more. I'll post the entire schedule soon for those who live nearby.

Finally, mark your calendars for the fourth weekend in November -- just before Thanksgiving. On Friday, Nov. 21 at 7:30 p.m., we've got a triple threat: Jon Scieszka, Tom Angleberger, and Cece Bell. And to cap off that magical weekend, Caldecott Medalist Jon Klassen will speak on Sunday, Nov. 23 at 1 p.m. about his newest book (written by Mac Barnett), Sam & Dave Dig a Hole.
