Authors, authors, and more authors in Philly in February

My friend, Linda Trice, sent me this announcement:

 This will be especially exciting for parents, educators 
and librarians: 

 Walter Dean Myers, Jerry Pinkney, Javaka Steptoe,
 E.B. Lewis and Linda Price will be among the
 authors and illustrators who will be participating
 in the African American Children’s Book Fair in
Philadelphia on Saturday Feb. 4, 2012.
The fair is 1-3 PM.
It is free.
There will be games for children, giveaways, short readings
and of course book signings.
NBC will cover the event.

This is the 20th year of the fair. 
Click on “The Brown Bookshelf’ to read about the history 
of the fair and the challenges, obstacles and triumph
of the one woman who saw her dream become a success.

Linda's book, Kenya’s Word (Charlesbridge Publications) 
can be bought at the fair. 
It can always be ordered from any bookseller.
