I hope those of you in Colorado stayed safe during the recent flooding. My family and home made it through fine, thankfully.
Just want to let you local people know about a few events I have coming up:
Thursday, Oct. 3, 2013 (in a few days!) 6:30 pm, Boulder Bookstore, Boulder, CO.
Fall Book Feast with Middle Grade Authors -- Join Melanie Crowder, Jeannie Mobley, Jenny Goebel, and Laura Resau for a fun and lively panel discussion about their novels for upper elementary and early middle school readers. Free and everyone welcome!
And now, some introductions to these awesome Colorado writers,
who also happen to be friends of mine!!
Here's her debut novel, which comes out this fall. I'm looking forward to reading it!
Here's Melanie Crowder and her beautiful debut novel, Parched, which came out this summer.
Her charming debut novel, Katerina's Wish, came out last year.
And I'll be focusing on my own debut novel from 2006, What the Moon Saw.
I get to talk about this a lot in school visits, but I haven't done a bookstore talk about this
for a while... I'm excited!
Other Event coming up:
Saturday Nov. 2, 2013 2:30 pm, Global Village Museum, 200 West Mountain Ave., Old Town, Fort Collins, CO.
Presentation -- The Queen of Water: the True Story of an Andean Girl's Journey. As part of the "Legacy of the Andes" exhibit, Laura will discuss Maria Virginia's amazing story, their collaboration process, and her research in Ecuador. You'll also get a glimpse into Quichua culture and recent social issues. The presentation is included with museum admission ($5 for non-members.) There will also be live Andean music, played by Marie Louise Borak. You can read more about the museum here. http://globalvillagemuseum.orgThanks, everyone! It would be fun to see you at one (or more) of these events! Please spread the word to anyone else who might be interested. xo, Laura
