?I’ll be going to NCTE in Boston soon, and I can’t wait! I’ll be there sharing my nonfiction picture book, A LEAF CAN BE…. On the agenda so far:
- A’signing for A LEAF CAN BE… on Friday from 4-5 p.m. at the Lerner Booth #822
- A table at the Books for Children Luncheon on Saturday
- Children’s Literature Assembly Master Class Saturday evening at 5:45 (I’m mostly behind-the-scenes on that one)
- Author speed-dating at the NCTE Notables Session on Sunday afternoon (I think 1-2:30)
- Get-togethers with other poets and poetry bloggers
- Hopefully meeting and chatting with lots of educators
I wanted to make a promo item to give away at these various events, but I wanted something that would stand out a bit from the thousands of postcards and bookmarks handed out there. I decided to capitalize on Violeta Dabija’s wonderful art for a LEAF bookmark. I used Overnightprints.com, and I designed these, leaving space at the top to add on a fabric leaf with a bit of double-sided tape. I’m happy with how they came out–and they were $40 for 250. I would’ve bought more, but I hate to order huge numbers before I see something in person. And soon I’ll have a new book to promote, so future materials will focus on that one.
Anyway, if you’re going to be in Boston, I hope I’ll see you there!
P.S. If you’re a LEAF fan, stop back by tomorrow to see what a cool class of third-graders did with the book!
