Saturday is UN International Day of Forests!
Here’s everything you need to know about my International Day of Forests Twitter Party!
When it is?
Saturday, March 21, from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM Eastern Time.
Do I have to have a Twitter account?
Nope! Twitter is 100% public and free. You can view all of the content I will be posting – fun facts, cute photos, links to resources – on my Twitter page:
Note, you will need a Twitter account to enter the giveaway. More on that below.
Will any other authors be there?
I am so please to announce that kid lit creators Darren Lebeuf and Carmen Oliver will be special guests at this event! You can follow all of their posts here:
I’m on Twitter: how can I participate?
Like, tweet, comment, retweet! The more the merrier.
#IntlForestDay is the official hashtag for the UN event. You can also email forest-themed photos to IDF@fao.org for possible inclusion in the UN’s official Day of Forests gallery.
And, of course, you can enter to win the giveaway!

And remember, you can’t catch a virus from Twitter – this is the perfect bookish/educational activity for anyone in self-isolation or who’s social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic. Hope to see you there!
Next week, I’ll be sharing another deleted scene from the first draft of The Boreal Forest. In the meantime, don’t forget to enter the Rafflecopter, and to contact me if you have a copy of The Boreal Forest in need of an autographed book plate (book plate offer valid until June 12).
