The Dallas Museum of Art hosts BooksmART each June which gives families a wonderful opportunity to interact with authors and illustrators, all for FREE. The line up this year was AMAZING!! The 2012 Newbery and Caldecott winners were there, Jack Gantos and Chris Raschka, as well as the creators of both the Babymouse and Squish series, Jennifer and Matthew Holm. I was also very excited to meet Clete Barrett Smith, the author of one of the 2012-2013 Bluebonnet nominees, Aliens on Vacation. It was a great day and I will definitely go back to BooksmART again next summer!
By the way, Curtis students, I got a copy of Babymouse, Queen of the World signed by Jennifer & Matthew Holm, AND I have two copies of Aliens on Vacation signed by Clete Barrett Smith. I will be giving these away to some lucky Curtis students, so check back for information on the giveaway!!
