Owly says… “READ!”

I’m incredibly honored and proud to announce that Owly and his woodland friends are now the stars of their very own “READ” poster for the American Library Association! Your Library (or even you!) can order the 22″ x 28″ poster here!

And if you’d like something a little smaller, you can order a big pack of Owly bookmarks and share the READ message with 99 of your friends!

I’m super excited about these because I’ve loved seeing all of the different READ posters in the library for as long as I can remember and its unbelievable to be a part of this wonderful program that promotes literacy. As you can see, Owly says READ in his very own way. My extra-special thanks go out to Leigh, Rachel, Tina, Terrance and everyone at the ALA for all of their wonderful ideas and support! ^,^

Oh, and just an update on my last story, SPX was wonderful and the Owly-Caster went to the wonderful Miss Julia for over $2,000! Thank you again, Julia! Both the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund and I really appreciate it! :D

We ordered the Owly bookmarks at our branch (Suwanee). They are a hit. I’ve got them sitting on the staff picks display with Owly books sandwiched in between them!
