TODAY Show Airdate: March 18th

March 7, 2011

I’m still over the moon (and still trying to lose weight) in preparation for my TODAY Show debut scheduled to air this month. As I had posted earlier in the year, The Search for WondLa is the featured title for Al Roker’s Book Club for Kids.

The live interview with yours truly is scheduled to air on Friday, March 18th. Of course, my segment can slip based on breaking news or other unforeseen scheduling conflicts. Should the date slip, I’ll be sure to post it here ASAP. Okay, back to dieting and WondLa 2…

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.
