A few weeks ago, I did a Creative Mornings talk at the Pittsburgh Children's Museum on the topic of "Childhood." This was my attempt to connect children's literature to a broader audience--specifically talking about what it means to work in an industry where the audience (children) are separate from the buyer (grownups). Of special interest might be the anecdote I tell about Tom Angleberger at minute 15 ... an event he has since claimed didn't occur (it totally did). Also, of course, I finish things off with a yo-yo show!
Creative Mornings is a fantastic organization. Find out about the next event in your own city and check it out!
