April is for Authors has invited me to join them in the third year of their countywide children’s literacy experience. The event, to be held at Palm Beach Gardens High School in Palm Beach County, Florida, over Friday, April 26 and Saturday, April 27, 2013, will bring together teachers, authors, students and families to share their love of books. Please check out last year’s event at www.aprilisforauthors.org
Created by a group of dedicated Palm Beach County educators as a way for students to interact with their favorite authors, the event will provide not only a valuable experience for the children, but an opportunity for authors to connect with their audience as well as key decision makers in local literacy programs.
Nationally known and local authors are featured at the event. Last year, I had the privilege of meeting Greg Taylor, author of the Killer Pizza series, whose third installment should appear in time for Halloween.
We'll see which schools I may visit leading up to the event!
