October: California!

October 5th, 2010

I will be all over California October 16-31! I wanted to spend a bunch of time in the Bay Area, as that’s where Smile takes place, and it’s where I’m from. Here’s information about where you can find me and what I’ll be doing. ALL of these events will be family-friendly, so feel free to bring your kids, your friends, and yourself!

October 16-17

San Francisco, CA
Find me at the Comics Bakery table, 202

I’ll be conducting a short workshop on Saturday the 16th at 1 PM, called Smile! Drawing Facial Expressions, with Raina Telgemeier. It will run about 30 minutes.

Long Beach Comic Con

Whew! I’m also doing several school visits, a signing at my old orthodontist’s office, and a private library event, but those are invite-only. However, as you can see, there are so many public events, you can surely find a time to come out and see me! Feel free to bring a book you’d like signed, and I’ll have original art for sale if you’re interested.

When we get back to New York, the fun continues with an event in Brooklyn, and then it’ll be off to Miami for the Miami Book Fair. I’m seriously busy until Thanksgiving, but I wouldn’t want it any other way.

Happy Haunting, and I hope to see you this month!
