Don’t Miss Ms. Cynsations

Now is your chance to meet Cynthia Leitich Smith in person and thank her for all she does for the Kid Lit community.

I tried to get Cynthia to do something with the New Jersey SCBWI while she was here, but I couldn’t fit my schedule into her schedule.  Candlewick is whisking her off to other states, just a little too fast.  I already have her on my personal schedule to see.

Cynthia’s new novel—Blessed, the third installment in the Eternal series.  Cynthia is on her way to the NY/NJ area, where the good folks at Candlewick are sending her on tour.

February can be frigid and Cynthia deserves nothing but a warm welcome—no matter how cold or snowy it is. Please feel free to share her Blessed tour dates below with Eternal fans, teens, kid-lit scholars, and writers in your area who will not want to miss New York Times best-seller Cynthia’s appearances!

  1. What a FANTASTIC cover!!!! I wouldn’t be able to resist picking up this book simply based on the cover!


    • Donna,

      That’s what I told her, too. I think the cover will go far to grab new readers fro her.
