SHIFTY-Themed Planter Boxes--SNEAK PREVIEW!!
Here is a sneak preview of some of the amazing SHIFTY-themed planter boxes and the equally amazing artist statements. A few of the planters are already on display at the Napa Main Library. I was so touched to see them and read the artists' thoughts on what parts of Shifty's story inspired them to create their art. These SHIFTY-themed planters will be displayed for silent auction at the free Napa County Reads Public Event on Wed. Oct. 27th at the Napa Valley Opera House.

Wow, just wow! Take a look.
Here are the two long sides of Emily Freiman's planter box.
And here are the 2 paintings on the shorter ends of Emily's creation.
Here's another colorful planter with an artist statement by Darlene Meltzer.
That's what fiction writers do, right? We imagine characters, settings and plot twists. I imagine this will be a place to capture creative moments in the life of a children's and YA author--a blog filled with short snippets of humor, heart and hope.
