Hooray! Today’s the day! Blockhead: The Life of Fibonacci is, at long last, a real, live book! You can buy it online and in bookstores everywhere. If you’d like an autographed copy, consider buying it from the indie bookstore in my neighborhood. The details are here on my Buy page.
Today, poet and writer Gregory K. is hosting the second stop on our blog book tour. Gregory and I have never met, but when he wrote me out of the blue a few weeks ago, I knew exactly who he was. Back in 2006, Greg ended up in the New York Times for originating a cool new form of poetry, dubbed “Fibs,” based on the Fibonacci sequence. Modeled after haikus, Fibs are 20-syllable poems based on the first six numbers after zero in the famous sequence. After the Times article appeared, Fibs spread virally around the web and Greg’s site became the go-to spot for many teachers, students and poetry fans.
Today I’m honored to be featured on his blog. I hope you’ll take the time to check out today’s Q&A, and maybe look around Greg’s site and learn about his work, as well.
Again, here are the stops along the tour...
Today, Tuesday, March 30: Q&A with me at the poetry blog of Gregory K, originator of "Fibs," Fibonacci-inspired poetry.
Wednesday, March 31: Q&A with John O'Brien, Blockhead's illustrator, at the blog of the masterful illustrator Carolyn Croll.
Thursday, April 1: We’ll visit I.N.K.—Interesting Non-Fiction for Kids—to learn about the origin of the book and its long genesis.
Friday, April 2: Check back at my blog for an exciting multimedia surprise!
Saturday, April 3: "Saturday Sketch" at Henry Holt's blog: I’ll be talking to John O’Brien, and you’ll be able to see his amazing before-and-after art of the book.
It’s shaping up to be a fun, action-packed week. I’ll be posting each morning as well, so you can learn a little about my friends as well as reminders about the schedule, in case you forget where you need to go.
