What is happening in The Room?

We were so excited to emerge from our pandemic induced one-year hibernation to see so many of your smiling faces at The Festival by the Lake on October 2nd! Special thanks to authors Linda Malcolm and Sally Chetwynd for joining us for the event.

With the weather turning colder and safety still a priority, we will take things day by day to see when we can resume our quarterly Meet & Greets for adult writers and illustrators, as well as other programs and events.

If you are signed up for our newsletter--you will be the first to know about future events!
