I will draw a name on Monday September 27th and I’ll announce the name before the following Tuesday. Offer is only good for people in the US. ***This drawing is over, WE HAVE A WINNER! Thank you for watching the video and commenting. Be sure to check out Larry’s new book TRICK OR TREAT OLD ARMADILLO, it’s a great Halloween read!***

Larry Dane Brimner rocks non-fiction in a lyrical way. Author of more than 150 books for kids, his non-fiction books WE ARE ONE, the story of Bayard Rustin and BIRMINGHAM SUNDAY informed me and affected me at the same time. I would bet that there isn’t a school child anywhere who hasn’t encountered one of Larry’s works. Larry chatted with me and shared with me his writing insights and why he loves fiction as much as non-fiction. He also scared me with his talk of what he would do to zombies with knitting needles.

    Larry is smart and almost as funny as Angela.
    Enjoyed the research talk — WE ARE ONE is one of my favorite all time Civil Rights book…Information wrapped in emotion — how did you guys put it?

    Thanks everyone! Larry is fantastic, isn’t he? Yes, I agree about WE ARE ONE and BIRMINGHAM SUNDAY, fulls of facts and true emotionally, Larry never lets us forget that those children were everyone’s children.

    I’ve got all your names down for the drawing, good luck! Extra points that don’t count towards anything to Marge for saying that I’m funny.

    Larry Dane Brimner rocks! I learned a lot, including that I want him on my side if attacked by zombies, because he is certainly creative in his choice of weapons. Like WE ARE ONE, BIRMINGHAM SUNDAY is wonderful, and I felt I really understood that history when I was finished reading it, because he made it understandable and accessible.

    I look forward to reading the OLD ARMADILLO books, too! I’m glad Larry gets to play with picture books for awhile.

    I really like that you have your own video blog now, and have moved everything over. Because I am technically lame, I couldn’t figure out how to comment on the youtube ones. I like the design, too!

    Have fun at the SCBWI conference! I wish I could be there, sitting beside you.

    Thank you Jennifer!
    I agree with you about Larry, he wields both a pen and knitting needle with expert lethal agility.

    I loved this wordpress template. Although, I will probably add/change the all the graphics eventually. I was happy with how the title turned out. The cardboard piece at the top and everything on it is my design. I’m so happy that you found me here!

    Thanks, I wish that you could be at the conference too, I will miss you but I know that the people at the WWW con are very lucky to be able to spend some time with you.

    Your name is in the drawing! Good luck.

    Thanks Judy! Larry has more wisdom than I do….he’s older than me. 😉
    Your name is in the drawing, good luck.
