1st Saturday Three Rivers

If you are a writer and/or illustrator of children's books, live in or around Tulare County, you are invited to join a critique group on 3/6/10, 10 a.m. - noon, 43641 Skyline Drive, Three Rivers. 559-561-3463 to RSVP. Refreshments will be served.

Background: Members of the Society of Children's Books Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) began a critique group in December for people in and around Tulare County. They met at Border's Books, Visalia and began a process of sharing writings, critiquing and meeting once a month in various homes. The group is large enough that we think it is time for a second group to form, thus the meeting on Spirit Hill. If you are curious about SCBWI, or have that manuscript sitting in a drawer, come and see what we are about.

After the meeting you will have plenty of time to take part in Three Rivers 1st Saturday event. My studio will be open Noon-2 p.m. for public viewing. Artists and vendors are out in force. See www.1stsaturdayTR.com for where to get maps, details of what artists and merchants are offering March 1st Saturday, Three Rivers.

Tiki Missing

Last night someone took Tiki from his home on the rock. Last time someone did this he was gone for three days. He was okay with a little vacation away from me. But lucky for the people who took him, they returned him before he missed me and became angry. Tiki's anger is huge. What he will do when angry I do not know but it won't be pretty. I only hope for the sake of the people who have him that they put him back on his rock, and soon.
