Empire State Building lit in Yellow

If you look this week at the nighttime skyline in NYC, you may notice the Empire State Building is lit up in yellow.

Why? Mayor Michael Bloomberg has officially declared May 5–12 to be Project Sunshine Week (their logo is yellow like sunshine), in honor of the 10-year-old nonprofit organization that connects hospitalized children worldwide with visiting volunteers, celebrities and others. And one of the group’s new programs, the Project Sunshine Book Club, is who I worked with when I visited the Lincoln Hospital.

And there's an article all about it in Publisher's Weekly (plus a photo of How To Be A Baby: By Me, The Big Sister and me and Markell at the Lincoln Hospital) which you can read here.

Reading in Bryant Park

This coming Saturday, May 10th, Children's Book Week 2008 kicks off in New York's Bryant Park from 12-5pm. The National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature Jon Scieszka will give the welcome and there'll be readings, activities, Clifford the Big Red Dog, Curious George and everyone!

PLUS... I'll be reading from the gloriously silly hysterically brilliantly incredibly outrageously enjoyable book of all time in the whole entire universe EVER: How To Be A Baby: By Me, The Big Sister. (Well, actually there are loads of other great books being read all day long by lots of supremely fabulous authors and illustrators.) If you're in the 'hood, stop by. We'd love to see you! I'm on at 4.30PM with a book signing afterwards.
