Thank you so much to those of you who were able to come to my online launch event last week with Red Balloon Bookshop! It was just lovely to see some familiar names in the Chat–really warmed my heart.
Since I had gathered info and thoughts in preparation for the event, I thought I’d create a little behind-the-book video that I could make public. The first 3 or 4 minutes are some quick thoughts regarding directions, hairstyles, my knitting abilities, and research. The rest of the time is my thoughts on 3 big concepts that play a role in ANY artistic endeavor: transformation, patience, and collaboration. I talk about how those three played out specifically in If You Want to Knit Some Mittens. I hope young writers and readers as well as teachers and librarians will find it fun. Please share with your friends–thank you!
More reviews and resources here, by the way :>)
