There is going to be a ridiculously cool book event next Monday. 

How cool?  Well, how about a little Adam "Frankenstein Makes a Sandwich" Rex...AND Jon "The True Story of the Three Little Pigs" Scieska...AND David "No David" Shannon...AND Mac "Guess Again" Barnett

All on one stage. 

And holy crap is that exciting. 

This is gonna be like the Woodstock of picture book writers, just with less filthy hippies and acid, so even better than that! 

Here's the event info: 

Laughing Loudly for Literacy
Monday, September 28, 2009, 6:30 pm

Crescenta Valley High School Auditorium

2900 Community Ave, La Crescenta, CA 91214

There's some more details about tickets and such here.

So, if you live in LA come out and check this out.  I will be there in all of my fanboy glory.

Also, I heard a rumor that these guys are gonna be doing this presentation at the White House at some point or another, so if it's good enough for Barack, it's gotta be good enough for you.  I mean, what the hell else are you gonna be doing on a Monday night? 

Personal Note: 

"The True Story of The Three Little Pigs" was one of my favorite books when I was a kid and I am super excited to meet Jon Scieska. 

Personal Note #2: 

Adam Rex is quite possibly the nicest and most talented person in all of literature.  And that's not just because he blurbed my book, though that doesn't hurt him either.  The dude is just that cool.
