This week I have two exciting speaking engagements.
On Thursday June 7 I’ll be speaking for the third time at Allen County Public Library for Young Adults/Homeschoolers. With the summer library reading program’s theme of ‘Epic’, YA librarian Cathy Lambert & I came up with the idea of challenging those attending to dress up like their favorite Greek God/ goddess/ monster.
Prizes will be awarded for the best costume. I’ll be talking about the writing of my 3 Greek Gods books. But I’ll also be dressed up in my own costume. Can you guess who I might dress up as?
Hint: I’ll not be in costume for any of the characters I wrote about since they are all male – Hades, Hephaestus, Hermes. So I’ll be dressed as a female figure.
Hint 2: I created a special head covering for this costume because my female Greek monster was especially known for it.
I showed my head covering to my daughter today as we Skyped and she called it ‘hideous’. Yeah! That’s just the type of reaction I want to get from people because the monster I’m in costume for was hideous!
OK! That’s all the hints. I’ll post photos of my costume, complete with the flowing, peach-colored gown my mother-in-law wore to our wedding, after the event.
Everyone is welcome to attend.
Allen County Public Library
900 Library Plaza (downtown Fort Wayne)
Time: 1-2:00 pm.
You don’t have to be a homeschooler or dressed in costume to attend.
I’ve spoken to this group the past two years on my other books. It’s always a joy to return. Posts on those appearances can be found by doing a search on ‘Allen County Public Library’.
Tomorrow I’ll post about my other speaking engagement which takes place on Friday.
How fun! What goddess do I think you would be? Hmm….If it were me, I’d be Athena, but I picture you in a more maternal role. I’ll guess Demeter. Make sure you snap a picture to post!
Oh Laurie, You’ll be shocked! I’m not planning to be Demeter. Something hideous, remember!? Keep thinking… Will you and Victoria be there? She could be a cute Centaur. 🙂
