You are cordially invited to join me at the Newark Museum this Wednesday, November 20, to kick off their Holiday Shopping Spree! I will be signing copies of my latest picture book, BRUSH OF THE GODS, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.BRUSH OF THE GODS, a historical fiction account of the life of China’s most famous painter, Wu Daozi, was just named a Kirkus Best Books of 2013!!!
And while you’re at the museum, don’t miss their fantastic special exhibit, Ming to Modern: Elevating the Everyday in Chinese Art, which includes beautiful pottery such as this:Can you guess which is Chinese and which is English?
Additionally, you’ll enjoy walking around the galleries and finding all sorts of marvelous things. On a recent evening, I got so engrossed in their vast collection of Tibetan art, that I nearly accidentally (well, okay, so I fantasize about living From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler) SPENT THE NIGHT, if it weren’t for a guard who did a final check through the galleries before locking the doors!
Hope to see you on Wednesday! Got school? Play hooky 😀 !!! It’ll be worth it, I promise :).
