David Shannon rounded out his visit to Colorado as the 2013 One Book 4 Colorado author on May 11 at two Jefferson County Public Library locations. He first gave a fun reading of Duck on a Bike at the Columbine Library to 70 fans, then demonstrated how he draws the character David in his No, David! books. He then took questions from kids and adults in the audience, answering great questions like “How long does it take you to finish a book?” (Shannon’s answer: about a year). He finished up by signing books for his fans.
Mr. Shannon next visited the Arvada Library to give another fun and funny reading of Duck on a Bike for about 50 people. At this library location, he heard from a family also named Shannon and from a few very big, young fans. After signing books, he left for the airport to return home to California.
We so enjoyed his visit to Colorado and appreciate his help in celebrating One Book 4 Colorado. We hope everyone will heed his advice he left on his drawing of his David character:
