National Book Lovers Day

officeheadshot.JPGAugust 9 is National Book Lovers Day. While it’s nice to be honored, I don’t need a special day because every day is Book Lovers Day for me.

When I posted this on my Facebook author page, a young fan commented that there should be a Peg Kehret Day. I actually had a whole Peg Kehret Week once, when I was doing school visits in Putnam City, Oklahoma. The mayor came to the first school and made the official proclamation. It was very exciting. I still have a pencil that says Peg Kehret Week on the side.

Kids helping animals

Inspired by Saving Lilly and Shelter Dogs, they are helping the Massachusets SPCA fight animal abuse. They’re also helping Grey2k, a non-profit organization dedicated to stopping greyhound racing.  As you can see by their flyer, the kids are working hard to raise money and collect needed materials for these worthy causes.

I am honored to know that my books inspired them to take action to help animals.
