A Few Zitas More, Plus Twitter and Goodreads

Tomorrow afternoon (that is, Wednesday the 5th of November), from 4:00 to 4:30pm, I will be participating in a live twitter chat on behalf of the Miami Book Fair (which I'll be attending, and you can find more information about that RIGHT HERE). The idea is that you can use the hashtag #MBFIBenHatke to ask me questions. And I will try to answer those questions. I've not done this type of thing before, so I'm a tiny bit nervous. I feel like I'm co-hosting a text-only party. Please feel free to come! Bring chips!

On twitter, I am @BenHatke.

And another bit of social media news: I just found out that Julia's House for Lost Creatures is a finalist in the Goodreads Choice Awards for picture books. If you use goodreads, please consider voting for your favorite picture book (they are all good choices).

And now, here's a few more of my favorite Zita the Spacegirl costumes from Halloween:

This Zita had a screed candy pail!

This little Zita had an impressive Robot One candy collector. Here's a closer look:

This Zita showed up at Word Bookstore in Brooklyn.

And this Zita showed up at my parents doorstep on Halloween.

And that's all for this year!
