This week I’m celebrating Authors.
There were cupcakes, games, prizes, and lots of fun. I enjoyed the creativity and dedication of her fans- a few of them had driven from Washington just to see her!
As you know, Shelby included us in the acknowledgements so I just had to get a signed copy of her book. I even took a selfie with her to add to my Authors I’ve Met album.
Green Bean Books is excited to be part of Rox in Sox– a children’s music and book festival who uses their free events to collect shoes, socks, and books to donate to kids around the world. I helped with the author’s line up and includes Cathy Camper, Jennifer Coughlin, Valarie Pearce, and Dawn Prochovnic.
I even got to be part of a group interview for the event on the local news! I was nervous the whole time leading to it but my one little word this year is FAIL- to try something new or different regardless of the outcome. Luckily it went fine. I was trying so hard to control my hand gestures! Here’s the video:
My Audio/Video Pick of the Week is Tim Federle’s graduation keynote speech at Hamline University.
What are you celebrating this week?
