Nat appears in Pasadena

For those of you in the greater Los Angeles area, I will be appearing at Art Night Pasadena this coming Friday, October 9. Art Night is a pretty cool deal, with all kinds of performances and display taking place around the town. I’ll be at the Pasadena Library, 6 PM to 10 PM, selling books (both things I wrote and things I’m publisher of), answering questions, chatting, maybe doing a little dance when no one is looking. If I don’t forget, I’ll even have a copy of The Snoopy Treasures along with me; I won’t be able to sell it, but you can get a sneak preview weeks before the book is released!
