Additional regions from the first leg (Sept. 21-Oct. 2) of the tour will be New Jersey, Long Island, Philadelphia and Chicago.

Leg two will start on October 12th and will include San Francisco (finally!), Houston and the Texas Book Festival.

I will also be speaking at the Mazza Museum in November (12-13) and am planning on an event or two in the Columbus, Ohio area. The following weekend I will be signing at the Miami Book Fair (Nov. 18-21).

For all of my friends and fans across the pond, the WondLa UK tour has been pushed to fall 2011. We just could not wedge it into my hectic fall schedule.

That’s all for now, more details as I get’em!

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.
