I know, I know...it's a week into October and you haven't heard anything new on the Author Fiesta blog. Sorry about that. Cay asked me to post today so everyone would know what is going on.
So...because Jim Arnosky has such a huge volume of works and fits so well into the fall study time we are continuing with that study into this month. With school starting, illnesses, hurricanes, etc. in our personal lives we hadn't been able to get into the Arnosky study as deeply as we had hoped. So thanks for bearing with us.
One thing that is also happening is we are preparing quite in advance for the November study and you may want a jump start on that. I am so excited - as this is one of my favorites. The November author is a classic author illustrator who was quite prolific for the time period, but not necessarily by today's standards. Many of this author's books are unfortunately out of print so we want you to have plenty of time to request them from libraries or find them used. So I guess that means I'm opening up the guessing for November's Author Fiesta author. And a hint: there is definitely a reason for picking this author to highlight this year. After the author is guessed, I'll post.
