Over the years, I've tried to support Connecticut children's lit events, be they the Connecticut Children's Book Fair or individual author appearances. Lit events are part of the whole authorial world, I guess is how I'd put it. Recently I was very taken by Amitha Knight's BosKidLit Author Events calendar of children's lit events in the Boston area, which she maintains at her blog, Monkey Poop. I'm interested in doing something similar for Connecticut, central Connecticut, at least. However, right now I'm working my computer guy to death with this e-book business for Saving the Planet & Stuff. So for the time being, I'm going to be more active, myself, about posting about events until he has time to work his magic.
Today I can tell you that Tommy Greenwald will be making a couple of appearances here in Connecticut to support the release of his new book, Charlie Joe Jackson's Guide to Extra Credit.
