Earlier this week I participated in a Read Local Challenge Party, at the Point O'View Elementary School in Virginia Beach, VA. This is an effort organized by the SCBWI MD/DE/WV chapter to encourage students to read kid lit authors from MD, DE, WV, DC, and VA.
Here's the line up of participating authors:
SCBWI MD/DE/WV provided party games, favors, and posters, and local schools or libraries host a party with a local author. (Local libraries: host your own party in October or November!)
It was lots of fun. Some photos from the evening:
