I missed Marvelous Middle Grade Monday this week--well, okay, I've missed it most weeks, sorry--but it wasn't until yesterday that I had full details on this cool event coming up in just over a week:
That's right, six authors will be signing books at Anderson's Two Doors East in Naperville, IL (just outside Chicago) at 4:30 pm, June 29 (including me)! It's all part of the author-packed weekend that comes from having the American Library Association Conference in town. Check out these events! Click on the links for more details:
