Carmel Clay Public Library Children's Book Festival

I will be one of a number of authors/illustrators to appear at the Carmel Clay Public Library Foundation's inaugural Children's Author & Illustrator Festival from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, May 16, at the library, 55 4th Avenue S.E., in Carmel. The library is located across Main Street from Carmel High School. All book sale proceeds will benefit the library's foundation.

At the event, I will be signing copies of my three youth biographies published by the Indiana Historical Society Press:

* The Sword and the Pen: A Life of Lew Wallace
* The Soldier's Friend: A Life of Ernie Pyle
* Fighting for Equality: A Life of May Wright Sewall

In addition to book signings by the authors at the festival, there are a number of programs scheduled during the day. For a complete list of programs, visit the foundation's Web site. Call (317) 81403905 for more information.
