Bring the kids out to the French Quarter’s Lundi Gras celebration… FAT MONDAY AT THE FRENCH MARKET to hear me read The Little Who Dat, Who Didn’t. My reading begins at 1pm. The event will take place at 1008 N. Peters St, RIGHT IN THE FRENCH MARKET, on Monday, February 11th from 10am to 4pm. There will be other children authors sharing their stories, live music, FREE kid activities, a king cake eating contest and LIVE music. Plus, there will be a Farmer’s Market so that you can get yourself some nice, healthy, local food! After my reading, I’ll be signing copies of my book at the book tent. I hope to see you all there.
