Spring and Travel!

Thursday, April 12th, 2012

Hi everyone,
Happy spring! Yes, I know it still feels a bit chilly out there, but I think spring is here! Whether you celebrated Easter or Passover, I hope it was a wonderful time with family and friends.

My big news is that I am leaving tomorrow (April 13) for a book tour to Brazil. Four of my books are being published there by Callis Books, and they have invited me for the launch. I will be visiting a number of schools where I will speak to young people about my stories. I’ll also have the chance to talk at a children’s book festival in Rio de Janeiro. I’ll be talking about The Secret of Gabi’s Dresser, Clara’s War, The Diary of Laura’s Twin, and The Underground Reporters. I’ll be back in nine days.

I’m so excited!! It’s remarkable to me that young people in countries around the world are reading my books and learning something about the history of the Holocuast. I’ll let you know how it all goes. I hope to do some touring in Rio and Sao Paolo as well.

Stay tuned for photos and updates. Next time, I’ll tell you about the progress of my latest book!!

Hope the next weeks are productive for all of you - and fun, of course.

Keep reading!
