Margaret Meps Schulte returns to Ohio in October with both of her giant cartoon series:

  • Thursday, October 6 at 3 pm at the Westerville Senior Center
    Meet the author of the internationally-acclaimed “oddest title of the year.” Margaret Meps Schulte, the author of Strangers Have the Best Candy, speaks about her passion for talking to strangers and making new friends from chance encounters. She shares tips to help the audience have more rewarding encounters with strangers, leading an attendee to say, “You’ll come away with at least one new friend.”
    The presentation is accompanied by Meps’ giant cartoon series, “How to Talk to Strangers.”
  • Monday, October 10 at 3:30 pm at the Westerville Senior Center
    Margaret Meps Schulte, the author of The Joyful Bear, presents the principles of teddy bear philosophy and explains why teddy bears are not just for children. In the humorous book, Meps’ teddy bear, Frankie, shares his cheerful teddy-bear value system and explains concepts like Being, Right Speech, the importance of changing your mind, and what you can do with your magic superpower.
    The presentation is accompanied by Meps’ giant cartoon series, “Ten Things I Learned from my Teddy Bear.”
