Beryl Reichenberg, OTP children's book author, was at the Discovery Museum in Santa Maria on Saturday, Jan. 10 at 3 PM to read her kid's book Hopping to the Moon and teaching a paper craft/bookmaking project for kids over the age of 7. "[She spoke] about what it might be like to live on the Moon, and the children [were] asked to write in their book about how, as a kid, they might live and play in a Moon colony." 

Beryl was also selling her children's books at the January 13 meeting of the SLO Nightwriters at 5:30. The monthly meeting is held at the United Christian Church of Christ on Los Osos Valley Road in San Luis Obispo, CA.  "The meetings are usually lively and informative and anyone can attend. I urge you if you live in the area to attend."

Recently, Chanukah Guilt's author, Ilene Schneider, was featured in a PBS interview. Here's what she to say about the experience: "I'm honored and pleased to be featured today on the Prime Time section of News Works, the blog for WHYY, Philadelphia's PBS station. My thanks to writer Stacia Friedman for doing such a good job distilling the essence of my ramblings. (And for introducing me to such a good veggie Chinese restaurant.) And to photographer Emma Lee for spending so much time trying to figure out how to make staring at a laptop monitor look dynamic."
