For anyone in the Tucson, Ariz., area, I'll be at the Tucson Festival of Books this Sunday, March 14. Here's my schedule of events:

Story Blanket: Matthew Holm

When: Sunday 10:30 AM - 11:00 AM
Where: Story Blanket

This is "story time." I'll be reading aloud from BABYMOUSE: BURNS RUBBER, as best I can (it's not so easy to read aloud from a graphic novel).

Three authors/illustrators will talk about creating graphic novels for children and teens. They will share their process of writing and illustrating graphic novels and the appeal of these novels for kids.

Where: Education Building - Room 353
Genre: Children/Youth
Matthew Holm
Frank Beddor
Maxwell Eaton III

A Thousand Words Made Easy: A Workshop on Cartooning

I saw you at the Alyss panel and I just wanted to give you a huge thumbs up for your mini rant on kids needing well rounded media literacy, not just traditional literacy.


I had a question too, but now I have forgotten it, just as I forgot to ask it when you signed my books. :( I will come back and ask it I remember it.

Glad you enjoyed the panel! It was one of the best panels I've been part of.

I should probably write up a blog post on the media literacy angle. (I talk about it in some of my presentations to educators, but I don't think I've put it online before.)

And no pressure on the follow-up question! Come back anytime.
