I’ll be doing an encore reading at Pierson Park when the band takes a break around 4:00 pm.

Irvington, NY, Farmer’s Market, Sunday 10/8/17, a quick reading in between bands from about 10:45-11:00. This will be my premier reading of What Do You Do with a Doodleloo, and I’m very excited. A quick reading, but I’ll be around with all 4 of my books before and after.
Barnes and Noble Local Authors Festival, Scarsdale, NY: 9/24/17 12-4. Once again I’ll be joined by the amazing Jason Carter Eaton, author of Great, Now We’ve Got Barbarians!; How to Train a Train; and more! There will be about a dozen authors at this event from various genres, so something for everyone!
I’ll have copies of all 4 of my books available. Welcome to Motherhood makes a great gift for all those new moms in your life (September is the most popular birth month), and Teaching to the Child for all those teachers, new and old, returning to work.
A great event. More pics in an album at Facebook.com/authorlorifettner.

Poetry month lesson plan giveaway and poetry discussion:
When: Sunday, 4/2/17, 2:00 p.m.
Where: Warner Library, 121 North Broadway, Tarrytown, NY 10591
Unlike my other events, this will be more a celebration of poetry than a celebration of new moms (although moms of any experience level are always welcome and will be celebrated!) I will have complimentary lesson plans from my online teacher store available, and will be reading from Welcome to Motherhood with a focus on guiding aspiring poets.
The goals for teachers: Making poetry fun for reluctant readers, and ready-to-go administration approved lesson plans for poetry month
The goals for poets: Tips on process and how to avoid writer’s block and poetry pitfalls
Both Welcome to Motherhood and Teaching to the Child will be available for sale and signing, and I may also have my brand-new picture book about space!
If you are interested in this event, please let me know via the Facebook event page so I can be sure to have enough materials: Poetry discussion and Lesson plan giveaway
Join me and 2 other fantastic authors, Nick Bruel (Bad Kitty series) and Jason Eaton (How to Train a Train) for a reading and book signing. There will also be treats and crafts for the kids, and a raffle for a basket of all three books signed by the authors!

December 3, 2012: Speaking / book signing with Westchester Libertarian Party
On behalf of the Westchester LP, I wish to extend our thanks to you for speaking before our group. Education is an important part of our lives and like many of our generation I fear for our children’s future if the schooling they receive is substandard. I am heartened by your enthusiasm and solutions offered. I wish you continued success in spreading the word.
