Sue Sloan and Helen Zientek, along with a hundred volunteers, knocked it out of the park with their 2nd annual APRIL IS FOR AUTHORS event!
Two dozen authors, from all over the country, came in for the event. For a full list of authors, click here.

In my first session, a mother told me her son enjoyed How to Survive Middle School and her daughter loved my new book, Olivia Bean, Trivia Queen, and they drove all the way from Ocala (3-1/2 hours away) for the event.

Tom Angleberger, Mary Monroe and I shared a panel discussion that was moderated by the Palm Beach Gardens mayor, David Levy. We had a lot of fun with the crowd.
The next panel was comprised of Sharon Draper, Lisa Graff, Claudia Mills and me. The standing room only crowd had great questions, and it felt like we spent the entire time laughing. What a blast! Emily Minor, from the Palm Beach Post, did an excellent job moderating the panel.
My favorite part, as always, was meeting the teachers, librarians, parents and wonderful kids.

I'm already looking forward to April 27, 2013, when the 3rd annual APRIL IS FOR AUTHORS will take place!
