You Can't go to School Naked- Now released!
You Can’t go to School Naked is now released! After nearly two years of fine tuning this story, it is great to get the advance copies of my book on my doorstep, seeing it available on Amazon for purchase, and the relief of seeing the first two reviews of the book come back positive. I am now focusing my efforts on setting up readings and signings, and have a couple of signings and readings set up for this next month, and possibly a third signing this fall in New York and California.
Since the time I began working on this book, I have had many conversations with people who have shared with me stories of their children not wanting to wear clothes, and even a story or two where their elderly relatives have refused to wear clothing. I will share some of these stories here in the coming days and weeks, and I hope you will enjoy them as much as I did.
While going through and organizing my studio the other day, I took some time to go through all of my drawings related to my book, and I was reminded of how the very first image that came to my mind when I read my mother-in-law’s story was of a crossing guard/policeman holding a stop sign in front of a child at the crosswalk. It was this image that got me excited to work on this book, and I am proud to say that it was the illustration we all decided upon for the cover of the book.
I want to thank Ted and Betsy Lewin for their crucial support and help in the beginning stages of my work on this book!
