We had a turnout of all ages at today’s reading and book signing at Streator Public Library, from toddlers to fifth-graders, parents, and a local 15-year-old writer who stopped by to talk about the book series she’s writing. Our group included home school students, preschoolers, and public school kids.
All in all, a great mix of reading levels and school experiences.
One of the highlights of the day was a visit from a teacher from Joliet, who already owned a copy of the book and read it aloud to her first-grade class. Her students wrote letters to me, which she will mail this week. I’m looking forward to reading and responding!
The day was divided into three hourlong sessions that featured a brief reading followed by a book signing. At the end of the first session, four of the kids joined me for a photo opportunity (the girls were a bit camera shy, but the boys flashed big grins).
Thanks to all who came!
