30th Anniversary Author and Illustrator Festival at Blue Marble

One June 20th, Blue Marble is having a big bash with Illustrators and Authors signing all day.

This includes Loren Long, Will Hillenbrand, Tamara Schmitz, Christina Wald, and many others!(Click here for full list and times.)

Hope to see you all there!


  1. Thanks for posting this, Christina! I'd like to add a personal endorsement:

    Anyone who's even remotely interested in children's books or publishing in general, should get on the Blue Marble's e-mail list and get to some of these events. The signings take place in an intimate room upstairs and they are often quite unlike typical signings where you stand in line, ask one question and move along.
    Fort Thomas (my childhood hometown) only seems off the beaten track —it's actually about 5 minutes from downtown, and making the effort can sometimes get you 15 minutes or more of personal time with an author or illustrator with a great deal of expertise in this field.
    The staff at TBM is very knowledgeable and the store is a virtual art museum peppered with framed drawings by very noteworthy artists. That alone is worth the trip.

    Like the lunch group, it's a unique opportunity we have to get better connected and learn from one another. IMHO, it's one of the city's best-kept secrets.

  2. Thanks Chuck! This is going to be a great event!
