Thanks for joining us for the fifth day of our virtual book tour, celebrating the release of “Blockhead: The Life of Fibonacci.” You can buy the book online and in bookstores everywhere. For an autographed copy, consider buying online from the indie bookstore in my neighborhood. The details are on my Buy page. Today, Friday, I’ll be talking about using the book to teach kids—and ranting like a madman—all in a separate post.
Again, here are the stops along the tour...
Tuesday, March 30: You read a Q&A with me at the poetry blog of Gregory K, originator of "Fibs," Fibonacci-inspired poetry.
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: Enjoy my next post, in which I share some teaching ideas and strategies for sharing Fibonacci’s story with kids, and get off on a characteristic rant.
Saturday, April 3: "Saturday Sketch" at Henry Holt's blog: I’ll be talking to John O’Brien, and sharing his rough sketches for the book and talking about the process of making Fibonacci’s world come to life. You’ll also get to see some of the “invisible” guidelines he used to work Fibonacci objects such as spirals into illustrations. You’ll be surprised how many of them you probably haven’t spotted!
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.
