is the author of the big nate comic strip & book series.
KJ, my not-such-a-fan-of-reading-son, loves the big nate series.
so. when i found out that our local library has an UH-MAZ-ING line-up of visiting authors…
AND, that lincoln peirce was coming…
we had to be there!
lincoln spoke to the kids/parents for an hour – he gave drawing demonstrations and chatted about how & why he got started in doing comics.
the best part: i was just as entertained as kj was – lincoln was so funny & inspiring.
the even better part: right in the middle of lincoln’s presentation, kj leaned over & told me,
“mom, this is my favorite day since we’ve moved to boston…”
lincoln signed ALL of kj’s ‘big nate’ books, what a stud.
