Chauni Haslet, who has owned All For Kids Books in Seattle, WA for the past twenty-two years is celebrating her sixtieth birthday by organizing a celebration of children's book authors around her hometown. Sixty-six authors (including Jack Prelutsky, Peg Kehret, Deb Caletti and Karen Cushman) will read in branches of the SPL as a gift to the birthday girl...and the icing on the cake--she's donating all store sales proceeds from that day to the Seattle Public Library Foundation.
This article from the Seattle Times also discusses trends in childrens literature and bookselling.
