Oh my. Are these five guys ever a hoot!
They didn't need a moderator; they needed a ringmaster with a whip.
Five Funny Guys: Gene Luen Yang, Nicholas Gannon, Jeff Anderson, Geoff Rodkey, and Daniel Handler (aka Lemony Snickett)
The tweens had lots of questions.
I was happy to see some of my librarian friends in the audience.
It was fun being moderator.
And I came home with an autographed book from each author.
Did I tell you how much it cost to attend?
Yes, it was free. Free.
Did you miss it this year?
Well, don't miss out next year!
Book reading is a good habit and it should be encouraged more.ReplyDelete
Yes, and an event like this goes a long way toward encouraging young people to read. Hundreds of kids!Delete
I loved Doldrums! The artwork is amazing. What a great festival.ReplyDelete
I can't wait to read it!Delete
Never knew Lemony Snickett was a book, loved the filmsReplyDelete
Oh my goodness. You must look for the Series of Unfortunate Events. The author was a blast in person, too.Delete
