Children’s Author Fran Manushkin to Sign New Katie Woo Title at BEA Conference
Children’s author Fran Manushkin will sign copies of the newest addition to her popular Katie Woo series at BEA 2012.
Capstone proudly showcases award-winning author Fran Manushkin who will sign advance reader copies of her forthcoming compilation Katie Woo Rules the School at BEA 2012. Publishing August 1, 2012, the title features four previously published stories from the popular Katie Woo series, which is praised by reviewers for its unmistakable kid appeal: “early readers will enjoy Katie’s antics,” (School Library Journal) and “a lighthearted chapter-book series about a well-meaning, mischief-prone young girl,” (Booklist Online).
Fran Manushkin is the author of many popular picture books, including How Mama Brought the Spring; Baby, Come Out!; Latkes and Applesauce: A Hanukkah Story; and The Tushy Book. There is a real Katie Woo – she’s Fran’s great-niece – but she never gets in half the trouble of the Katie Woo in the books. Fran writes on her beloved Mac computer in New York City, without the help of her two naughty cats, Cookie and Goldy.
