Who Was Aloha Wanderwell?

AHOLA WANDERWELL THE MOST TRAVELED GIRL IN THE WORLD Have you heard of Aloha Wanderwell? No? Neither had I. Then I started reading her memoir, A Call to Adventure, and I thought … how in the world did I not know about this person? Aloha was an explorer, filmmaker, actress, vaudevillian, aviatrix, author, and essentially, the model […]

Love for Louisiana

This past June, Kenny and I did a tour of Louisiana Libraries. We performed in 24 libraries in 12 parishes over a two-and-a-half-week period. We’ve done this tour in the past, so it was a chance for us to see old friends and meet lots of new ones. We LOVE Louisiana! The food, the culture, […]

Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators Conference
