“I feel like everyone in children’s books is from Michigan. Where is everybody else going?” – Erin Stead
2011 Caldecott winner and Ann Arborite Erin Stead announced on her blog that Nicola’s Books will be throwing a party in celebration of her win. Both Erin & Philip will be in attendance. The event begins at 6 PM on Tuesday, March 8th.
If you’re local and haven’t visited Nicola’s yet, I strongly encourage you to do so. They have a fabulous children’s section and host a story time every Saturday. It’s my favorite bookstore in Ann Arbor, especially since Shaman Drum closed. Let that be a lesson to us: support independents lest they be gone tomorrow.
An interview with Erin is featured on Nicola’s website.
