May has been book festival month. My friend Kitty talked about “Welcome to Washington, Fina Mendoza” in Berkeley and in Pasadena.
At the Bay Area Book Festival, Kitty appeared with Marissa Moss who has written TWO books about the Pinkerton Detectives. Since I’m a girl detective, Kitty and Marissa helped the audience of kids solve a real-live murder mystery that happened right down the street in Berkeley.
Last weekend, it was LitFest Pasadena where Kitty appeared on a panel with a whole bunch of really great writers to talk about middle grade novels.
