Barnes & Noble, Evansville, Indiana
The book: Cora Cooks Pancit (multicultural hardcover picture book for ages 4-8)
Written by Dorina Lazo Gilmore, Illustrated by Kristi Valiant
I have my first book signing at a store coming up for a picture book that I’ve illustrated. I’ve done book signings at schools and conferences before, but a store seems a bit more scary because I don’t know if anyone will come. I’ll be bringing a pot of pancit to give out samples. Pancit is a Filipino noodle dish with chicken and veggies – the recipe is in the book and it’s delicious! I’ll also be wearing my red apron just like Cora does in the book.
I hope to see you there!

The book is available at bookstores or from Amazon.com (it’s gotten great reviews on Amazon and some other sites).
