The Baltimore Book Festival

On Saturday, I was at the Baltimore Book Festival, where I was invited to read inside the Story Share - a new tent that is a cozy reading spot. It is also a cool art installation, designed by my super-talented cousin Stewart Watson, who is written up in Baltimore Magazine this month along with Area 405 (the art space she manages).

The name of the installation is Goodnight Moonlight Nightlight, and the tent featured a HUGE nightlight that changed colors and involved a moon cover that Stewart made . . . somehow. I neglected to ask. The tent was lined with colors and patterns inside, and contained beanbag chairs and poufs and pillows, plus bins of books for the reading.

Heres are some photos:


Here's me, before getting to the reading.

It was a great day - I got to read my picture book, At the Boardwalk, a number of times for people who stopped in, and also read poems from other anthologies and from my chapbook, along with fielding questions about writing for children and visiting with an aspiring picture book author who was really fun to talk with.

Glad I rested all last week in advance of it, and not sorry that I'm still wiped out because of it!

Man, we can see the resemblance!
That nightlight thingy is really cool looking! What a fabulous opportunity, and I'm so glad you got to go and do your thing. It looked like fun. (Also, your hair is crazy adorable!)

You guys and your beautiful smiles! Sounds like a lovely and tiring day, Kelly. And I SO WANT your cousin's moonlight nightlight artwork. I've been browsing moon art online looking for props for when I do events for my forthcoming book, IF YOU WERE THE MOON. I have seen nothing anywhere near as cool as that! Jealous.
