Children’s & YA Authors

“For me, the funnest part of past festivals is teaching kids my How-To Cowboy tricks: playing hand trumpet, whistling through their tongues, and talking like Donald Duck. Shhh! Don’t tell anyone, grownups like to learn this stuff, too!”
– Edward Allan Faine, author of “How-To Cowboy”
