Come and see our ugly mugs!

Bored this weekend? Feel like taking a roadtrip? This Sunday, September 12th is the Kerrytown Book Festival! Kerrytown is my favorite neighborhood in Ann Arbor (and not just because I live there). The farmer's market, good coffee, food, and one of my favorite stores, Found, just to name a few things within a 2 block radius.

On top of all that fun, this weekend there are two festivals. The first, Saturday, is the Homegrown Festival. Phil and I stumbled upon it last year and we were so pleased to have accidently attended. It's delicious.

The second festival is Sunday. It is the Kerrytown Book Festival. There will be a plethora of speakers and events for kids and adults. Notably, David Small will be doing an interview with Nicola Rooney. Ms. Rooney is the local indie bookstore owner. She has graciously invited us to sign copies of our little book, A Sick Day for Amos McGee. We'll be sitting at her table at 1 o'clock.

Head to Ann Arbor this weekend! If you don't want to see us or your tired of Amos McGee, there will be plenty of other books and things to do. Check out the Hollander's activities. While you're at it, check out their store.

1 o'clock, Sunday September 12th! See you there!


  1. How was the book festival? I completely missed it since I went on a trip and came back completely jetlagged. Glad to hear you guys got to sign some books there!

  2. Hi there - my wife brought "Sick Day for..." home yesterday and we read it to our kids last night before bed. I just wanted to say that I loved the illustrations (I looked back through them after we put the kiddos to bed). Very nice work!
