Caterpickles Central Update: Our time in Chicago is winding down

(Photo: Shala Howell)

Caterpickles Central is packing up shop and heading west again. This time to Northern California. Moving day is in mid-September.

Posting will be spotty over the next month or so, as we shut down the Chicago version of Caterpickles Central and open up the new one in the Bay Area.

We’ll miss you, Chicago. We’re so glad we got to spend one last glorious summer with you.

About Shala Howell

I spent two decades helping companies like Bell Labs, Juniper Networks, and a genetic testing company that was later acquired by CVS translate some of the world’s most complicated concepts into actionable, understandable English. Now I'm working on a much harder problem -- fostering children’s curiosity and engagement in the scientific, artistic, and linguistic world that surrounds them. The first book in my Caterpickles Parenting Series, What’s That, Mom?, focuses on how to use public art to nurture children’s curiosity in the world around them. My next book will focus on science, and how parents without a science degree can answer their curious child's questions without enrolling in a college level refresher course. In the meantime, you can find me blogging about life with a very curious Eleven-Year-Old at, chatting about books and the writing life at, and tweeting about books, writing, science, & things that make me smile at @shalahowell.

    This is quite a surprise. Moving to Frisco, flowers in the hair. Beads, bells, incense…the whole shebang. I think you’ll like the weather better though the expenses of living in Calee’fornia may be a bit of a shock. All the best!

      Thanks! It was a surprise for us too, frankly. Popped up a bit last minute, but we are looking forward to the sunshine and the possibility of less light pollution interfering with our astronomy habit. 🙂
