I'm going to Washington DC 
Sorry for the lack of updates! Every member of my family and I have been taking turns being sick for the last six weeks. I'm leaving for Washington DC today. There, I'll be doing a signing at Big Planet Comics on Wednesday 3/26 at 7pm. Here's the address and phone number:

4908 Fairmont Ave.
Bethesda, Maryland 20814

I'll be doing a presentation at the The Kennedy Center on Thursday at 11am as part of their Performing Arts Series. More info here (you have to scroll down a bit).

I'm also going to visit the Howard County Library on Friday 3/28 at 7pm. Here's the address:

George Howard Building
3430 Courthouse Drive

I'm Sick... 
...so I'll be missing the 2008 Spring Conference of the Colorado Language Arts Society, unfortunately. I'm really sorry to be missing this-- it sounds like it's going to be an inspired gathering of teachers, writers, and other logophiles. But this season's flu has really knocked me out, and if I go I'll end up being its Trojan Horse.

Correction to Milpitas Event

Milpitas Public Library
40 N. Milpitas Blvd.
Milpitas, CA.

Chop Chop 

Over at his blog, Dr. K has been discussing Chop Chop , the Chinese mascot of DC Comics' superteam The Blackhawks. Chop Chop is an ancestor to my character Cousin Chin-kee. Anyone who is interested in the history of stereotypes will find these posts fascinating.
