Rickshaw Girl's going paperback! Charlesbridge plans to release that version Spring 2008.

Editor Margaret Woollatt sent me the very first review for First Daughter: Extreme American Makeover (Dutton, June 2007). Kirkus says the book has "an interesting premise that provides a detailed and fun glimpse into campaigning's hectic reality and shines a positive light on America's multicultural reality." Nice.

I'll be reading and signing (along with others, including Lizzy the Clown) at the Peabody Barnes & Noble in Massachusetts this Saturday, May 5th from 1:30 - 3:30 to raise money for the North Shore Community Action Programs. Download vouchers from their site and come buy books (they don't have to be mine :>).

My writer's group was featured in the Newton Tab yesterday. Read about how we operate and check out a photo of Oz and Ends, Karen Day (Tall Tales, Wendy Lamb Books, May 2007), and my shoulder.

The San Jose Public Library (Northern California) wants to host a west coast book launch and bhangra party for First Daughter this summer. Stay tuned for details if you're in the Silicon Valley area.

YES! I really want to go to the Silicon Valley party. I'll be there. If I'm not in India.

Oh, good. I'll post the information here soon. Where in India do you go? Sounds wonderful.
