I’m so excited to be here this weekend…
Seriously, what could be better than hanging out with readers? Talking about books? Dressing up like your favorite book characters? Rubbing elbows with super-talented authors AND all in the name of charity!?!?!
Um – is there anything better?
I’m fairly certain the answer is no… And I can’t wait. Are you going? If you can’t, fear not – I will post some adventures, with a few pictures too, to share the experience next week. But if you’re in North Texas, I invite you to make this your to-do list item #1.
Here’s some more info… to woo you a bit more Look! Look at this line-up…
