BEA…Sketchbooks and Elephant in New York City…

As I get Elephant ready for ALA…I am looking over my notes from BEA.
My problem with note taking is that my pen is constantly distracted by people in the room….even when I am looking at the backs of heads.

My packing list for ALA:
Elephant & Gracie…
Sketchbook & favorite pen…tcp

ELEPHANT’S STORY…a new book an Elephant head to BEA…

ELEPHANT'S STORY by Tracey Campbell Pearson published by Farrar, Straus, Giroux Fall 2013

ELEPHANT’S STORY by Tracey Campbell Pearson
published by Farrar, Straus, Giroux Fall 2013 ISBN 978-0-374-39913-9

My new book , ELEPHANT’S STORY, published by Margaret Ferguson Books, Farrar Straus Giroux (BYR), will be available in October  2013. I will join him at BEA in NYC. He will still be in F&G form….but he can’t wait to get out into the world. So…off he goes to the big city.
He now has his own book page on my website: http://www.traceycampbellpearson.com/books/elephant.html

Elephant has his own blog!
http://elephantstoryblog.com
I will help him post “everything elephant”….starting with images of elephants. I have stumbled upon many since the day I decided to write this book. The blog will have sketches, activities for the book and…well….everything elephant…keep checking.

I will be at the Silent Auction and Sendak Memorial Auction at the Javits Center in NYC. I have two pieces of artwork in the auction:

Gracie reading Where The Wild Things Are to Elephant-original watercolor for The Sendak Memorial at the 19th Annual Children's Book Silent Auction-Supporting Free Speech Rights for Young Readers May 29 at Book Expo America
