Time to Catch Up on this page – I discovered I had not included a lot of signing opps during the rest of 2012! Here are a few….
In early December I enjoyed returning to the Philadelphia area for another book-signing/reading fund-raising event at St. Bede’s School. This is my very favorite part of being a children’s author!! The children are so well-mannered and attentive, and ask lots of thought provoking questions. It is so much fun!!
I also had a wonderful book-reading experience when I visited my daughter’s two kindergarten classes, as well as several other classes at her school. Lots of students brought in their previously purchased books for me to sign!
Then in December, I had my third annual Christmas season signing at Barnes and Noble. It is always so special to go there, and to be a part of the Christmas giving season! I had all three books there, and they did very well.
In October, I had a book-signing for the WECF Summit Conference in Nashville, TN – which was a fund-raiser. 50% of the cost of the books went the the WECF to support scholarships and programs for girls and women. I am scheduled for another fundraiser in the Philadelphia area as well as my annual booksigning at the Vestal NY Barnes and Noble on December 17, 2011.
I have had many signings since my last post, as well as several fundraisers. Check my Facebook Fan Page for more news at http://tinyurl.com/Author-Sherrill-S-Cannon
I have had a book reading-signing at the Barnes & Noble in Vestal, NY this July, where I had lots of pre-schoolers listen enthusiastically to both The Magic Word and Peter and the Whimper-Whineys.
I have been asked to do another book signing event at the Shady Brook Farm in Yardley, PA in August, this time for The Magic Word. Last August I did one for Peter and the Whimper-Whineys, followed by one in December, featuring my Santa’s Birthday Gift. I hope to do another this December as well, with all three books. They will also have some available for sale in their store. (Of course, I will be happy to sign books for anyone who buys early if you bring the book to the signing event!)
Also, there is another 2011 Book-Signing for Santa’s Birthday Gift scheduled for December 17th from 2:00-4:00 at the Barnes & Noble on the Vestal Parkway in Vestal NY. I hope to see some of my fans there!
Previous book-signing events include the one last September at the Barnes & Noble in Vestal, NY for Peter and the Whimper-Whineys. I have posted photos of that event on the main page, as well as this mention here.
I also had a wonderful time reading my pre-signed Peter and the Whimper-Whiney books to the children at Little Friends Pre-School in Greenwich, CT.
The children all left the room chanting, “no more whining, no more crying”! I certainly hope it lasts!!
I also had book-reading/signings for three Catholic Schools in the Philadelphia area, where they used 300 Santa’s Birthday Gift books as fund-raisers. That was the most fun of all – all those cute faces and wonderfully perceptive questions… I hope to return this year with The Magic Word.
Last August I was the Guest Author at the Summer Reading & Craft Program for Kids at Shady Brook Farm in Yardley PA, where I read my book, “Peter and the Whimper-Whineys”. PA Congressman Patrick Murphy and PA State Representative Steve Santarsiero were also part of the program and read to the children. The photo is of Patrick Murphy, holding his adorable baby Jack, and me! The others are photos of the reading…
