  1. This sounds great. I hope they had a great turnout. Kids should have enjoyed this. I wish we had a local book store that did things like this.

    1. I think it is an incredible opportunity for our SCBWI regional chapter too, Beverly. I couldn't attend and haven't yet heard how the turnout was but am going it was great.
