I was going through some old pictures and came across these of author Marc Brown . Marcy Brown writes the children's books series Arthur and the PBS series based on the books. My son was a big fan of the PBS shows and the books when he was younger. He was in town at a local book store, sadly this beautiful bookstore is now closed. We got our tickets and went with friends and the kids loved it. They had Marc Brown set up on a second floor balcony and the audience on the floor below. Marc Brown talked about how he created the Arthur books and the characters and showed the audience how he draws the characters. The kids loved it and the adults as well. It was a great experience for my son and we enjoyed it as well. The kids were allowed to ask questions and my son was picked to ask Marc Brown a question so he was thrilled. They had an author signing afterwards and the kids were able to talk to Marc Brown for a minute as he signed their books. This is one of those favorite childhood memories and we have kept the autographed books Marc Brown signed.
