At 2:00 p.m. George reads from his book and talks to kids and families about his boundless knowledge of Greek goddesses, gods, and beasts. Come and be amazed -- at George's encyclopedic information AND his series of books that interest and fascinate readers of all ages.

Thoroughly Thankfully Talented

Here's a group photo of everyone (basically from left to right): Eric Velasquez, Dan Gutman, Ame Dyckman, Vin Vogel, Leslie Martini, Jessica Olien, Emily Arnold McCully, Julie Fogliano, Beth Ferry, Steve Light, and George O'Connor.
