At the beginning of November in 1620, the Mayflower and her passengers were nearing the end of their gruelling voyage across the Atlantic Ocean. It took them 66 days.
This weekend I'll be going the easy way, by plane, and it shouldn't take much more than 7 hours.
What a difference 395 years makes!
The lovely people at Candlewick Press will be bringing me around New England to talk about The Boy Who Fell Off the Mayflower, or John Howland's Good Fortune. I love the cool name they have for my tour!
I will be visiting a lot of schools but there will be bookstore appearances and public events as well;
On Sunday morning Nov 8th, I will be at Plimoth Plantation, that wonderful living history museum that was such an inspiration to me in the making of my book.
Nov 9th and 10th there will be various events at Water Street Bookstore, Exeter, NH.
See their website for details.
On Nov 11th at 7pm I will be doing a public event at Porter Square Books, 25 White Street, Cambridge, Massachusetts.
And just before I return home I will be appearing on the 14th Nov I will be at the Connecticut Children’s Book Fair at Storrs, CT.
