One of my favorite illustrators, Caldecott award-winner Simms Taback, is going to appear at an event for the Museum of Ventura County on May 2, but sadly, I'm not available that day. He'll be speaking at 2:00 pm, with a reception (and I assume a book signing?) to follow. The price is right, too... only $5 for non-members of the museum.
Maybe, if I pore over my already packed schedule, I'll find a way to get up to the Museum before their exhibit, Picture This! The Magic of Children's Books closes on July 5th.
