Description of Pictures: Nursery Rhyme Stories: Lana Krumwiede & Erica Perl:
Just Itsy by Lana Krumwiede
Lana Krumwiede is the creator of the Psi Chronicles series. Her forthcoming picture book, "Just Itzy," features the Itzy Bitzy Spider of nursery rhyme fame... and perhaps a few other familiar nursery rhyme characters. Lana's work has appeared in Highlights, High Five, Spider, Babybug, The Friend and Chicken Soup for the Child’s Soul. Before becoming a writer, Lana worked as an office manager, a stay-at-home mom, a preschool teacher, a Spanish teacher, a bilingual kindergarten teacher, a swimming instructor and a reading tutor. Her few mildly supernatural abilities include untying knots, peeling oranges and dominating in board games. Her perfect day would include reading, writing, swimming, cooking, telling jokes, spending time with family and pie. And maybe a board game or two. She lives in Virginia with her husband and daughter. Twitter: @LanaKrumwiede
Goatilocks and the Three Bears by Erica Perl
Erica S. Perl is excited to return to the Gaithersburg Book Festival with "Goatilocks and the Three Bears," the tale of a hungry kid who makes a meal, a mess, and – hopefully – amends! Erica is also the author of popular picture books including "King of the Zoo," "Chicken Butt!" and "Dotty," plus novels for older readers ("When Life Gives You O.J." and "Aces Wild"). Her books have been featured on NPR, The Washington Post, Read Kiddo Read, Slate and Amazon’s Best Books. Erica lives with her family in Washington, D.C., where she once met President Obama at – you guessed it - a book store! Twitter: @ericaperl Facebook: Erica Perl Instagram: ericaperl

Multi Column: Number of columns of thumbnails to appear per page (normally defaults to 3):
Bigger photos? To save space on the server and because the modern camera images are so large, photos larger than 640x480 have not been loaded on this page. If you need the bigger sizes of selected photos, email me and I can email them back to you or I can re-load this page temporarily with the bigger versions restored.

2015 photos: Equipment this year: I mostly used my Fuji XS-1 camera but, depending on the event, I also used a Nikon D7000.
I retired from the US Census Bureau in god-forsaken Suitland, Maryland on my 58th birthday in May. Yee ha!
Trips this year: two Civil War Trust conferences (Raleigh, NC in March, and Richmond, VA in June) and two personal trips (to San Diego Comic-Con in July and down for a Florida quickie in August) after I retired.
Ego Strokes: Carolyn Cerbin used a Kevin Costner photo in her USA Today article. Miss DC pictures were used a few times in the Washington Post.
Number of photos taken this year: just over 550,000.
