How Writers Choose Their Characters or More Precisely How Characters Choose Their Writers, Author’s talk and booksigning with Augusta Scattergood
I'm totally excited about this event. These are the great kids and their equally great librarian who jumped into action when the NPR BackSeat Book Club people called.
Here's a little from librarian Alice Pierotti's press release about Como Reads:
EMILY J. POINTER PUBLIC LIBRARY ANNOUNCES 2014 COMO READS
