An Egg Is Quiet

Today's highlight was DHA's signing at BookPeople. Her latest titles include: An Egg Is Quiet, illustrated by SL (Chronicle, 2006), which has garned stars from Publisher's Weekly and Kirkus; Mama Outside, Mama Inside, illustrated by SG (Henry Holt, 2006); and Mama's Wild Child/Papa's Wild Child, illustrated by NH (Charlesbridge, 2006). Find out more about DHA.

DHA read from her books and showed fans real-live eggs, large and small.

It was a star-studded turnout! Luminaries include GB, BXD, FH, JL (author interview), AL (author interview), MM (author interview), JP, LL (author interview), LGS, DT (illustrator interview), and JW.

Afterward JW and her husband Rodger joined GLS and I for lunch at ZTejas. I had the chicken artichoke stack ("[a]rtichoke-mushroom stuffing layered between grilled chicken breasts with soy mustard cream").

In other good news, GLS is finally getting a haircut this afternoon. Right now he looks like a member of The Monkees (as they did, ya know, back in the day; see The Monkees now).
