Last month, I launched my book, POET: THE REMARKABLE STORY OF GEORGE MOSES HORTON, in the North Carolina area, under the banner of the Freedom Tour: A Children’s Literature Book Tour. Last weekend, I bought the tour home to Austin, with a celebration at the George Washington Carver Museum. I was honored to be joined by fellow collaborators Kelly Starling Lyons and Chris Barton. Kelly is the author of the book I illustrated, Hope’s Gift. Chris is the author of, The Amazing Age of John Roy Lynch, in which I illustrated. The event was a rousing success, with so many friends and the local community turning out to celebrate our books with us. Here is a glimpse of the special day.
