Miami Book Fair

November 15, 2010

For all of my Florida fans and friends, I will be attending the Miami Book Fair on Saturday, November 20th. Yours truly will be interviewing the one-and-only Kate DiCamillo and presenting with Ridley Pearson followed by a book-signing. Bring your books, magic cards, RPG booklets and a camera – I’ll sign it all and I’ll see you there!

PS – I will also be bringing a very limited stash of WondLa sketchbook for anyone who brings a copy of WondLa to be signed.

Never Abandon Imagination Tony DiTerlizzi: Never abandon imagination.

Imagination is a world of possibility that exists within each of us. It is what makes us uniquely human. It is our creative fingerprint that touches and influences the world around us. Imagination is essential to art and science; to innovation and prosperity. It gives us hope, calls us to action and leads to change.

Whether it’s fairies, dragons, robots or aliens, all of my children’s book characters are siblings born of my imagination – an imagination strengthened through years of encouragement from family, teachers and friends. While so many others abandoned it during their transition from childhood to adulthood, I fiercely held onto mine, hoping for a day when I could share it to inspire the next generation of dreamers. Innovators. World changers.

Imagination empowers us to envision and create a reality of what could be. We must hold it dear, foster it and never abandon it.
