FAO Schwarz Book Signing on Sept 24

What a fun day! Lots of kids sat and listed to four story times.
Story time at FAO
Everyone that worked in the store wanted to meet Finn. She was a real celebrity. It's always fun to go to FAO but to do it as a VIP was sooo cool. Aside from getting to meet Captain America, Spidey, and the Toy Soldiers, Finn also got to watch a "Big Piano" show from the inside! They were amazing!

At the end of the day, Finn adopted a new baby who she named Tiana.

Thanks for a great day FAO.

Busy Summer Fun

With lots of sun, water, and fun, Finn managed to fit in two book signings. One in upstate New York near the Finger Lakes. Her youngest fan at Downtown Books and Coffee, in Auburn NY, was this baby who really liked her book. 

Baby LIke It

After signing books, Finn visited a few vineyards with Mom and Dad. She did a "tasting" of fresh grape juice—red and white. Yum! Swedish Hill Vineyard was fun because Finn met Doobie the donkey. "He's funny."

Later in the summer Finn went to the Jersey Shore. Sea Isle City was really fun! Finn did lots of body surfing, boardwalk rides, and biking. "Ice cream on the beach is the best!"

Finn even went to the Cape May Zoo to visit her old friend Rocky the Tiger. She saw other animals from her Aminals Animals book including some flamingoes, giraffes, and lions.

ALA in New Orleans After Clinton Book Shop, NJ

It was an exciting trip to New Orleans. Finn loves to travel, especially by plane. Hotels are fun, too. The conference for ALA (American Library Association) was really huge. We met lots of librarians and students interested in her book, "Aminals Animals." Finnoula signed copies for over an hour!

 Afterward, Finn got to see the sights and have a delicious dinner. We hope everyone else had a great time. 
Fun in New Orleans

The day before going to ALA, we signed books in downtown Clinton, NJ at the Clinton Bookshop. It was a very nice event. Finn read her story twice to young listeners and signed about 15 copies of her book. We also had a camera crew there shooting video and interviewing people. Thanks Harvey for a great day in your store.

Book Expo America May 2011

We had a great time a BEA. Finn's quote of the day was, "I really am famous now." Her book signing of Aminals Animals was a big success. We actually ran out of books and Finnoula signed fliers. Thank you all for making it a great show. See you at ALA.
