Featured Book: BOATS ON THE BAY

"This event is part of our "Write in Your Own Backyard Series," which spotlights the work of local and regional book publishers. This season's highlighted publisher is Petaluma-based Cameron & Company, specializing in “books that need to be books,” with a focus on photography, art, food/wine, children’s, and other publications of regional interest.

This large-format picture book about all of the boats found on a busy bay is inspired by the San Francisco Bay but with universal appeal. The book features a spectacular double-spread gatefold finale showing a boat parade and fireworks glowing against a city backdrop."

I had such a lovely time sharing BOATS ON THE BAY and MAYA LIN - ARTIST-ARCHITECT OF LIGHT AND LINES with other nonfiction children's book authors at the wonderful Mrs. Dalloway's Bookstore in Berkeley. What a terrific audience of teachers and librarians!

I thoroughly enjoyed sharing BOATS ON THE BAY with Napa Bookmine on the Oxbow Public Market deck overlooking the river (with a kayak gliding by) today at 10:30. And then I signed books inside the bookstore. What a terrific bookstore and booksellers! I enjoyed sharing the book with many out-of-towners who were eager to take home a SF Bay area book for children back home.
