This year, Little Nemo in Slumberland by Winsor McCay would be 107, and holding up much better than I since 2005, when this cartoon appeared. On to book signings. Eventually, I will post a calendar with all events listed, for perusal at your leisure, but, for now, I can tell you I have scheduled several appearances in late winter and early spring. So far, they are all in the southeastern U.S., but please be patient; we’ll be working outward. As evidence of this strategy, the first announced appearance will be a family affair, although everyone is invited. I will be at The Gnu’s Room in Auburn, Alabama, on Saturday, Feb. 4, beginning at 4 p.m. The Gnu’s Room is an Auburn institution, an independent bookstore with a distinctive personality. Did you know a gnu and a wildebeest are the same thing? It was gnus to me!
