This past weekend, I got the chance to participate in a super fun event dedicated to books for kids: the Tweens Read Book Festival in Houston, TX. Twenty-one authors, hundreds of middle grade readers, personalized cupcakes, hand-made knitted water bottle cozies, 85 degrees weather (it was a wet and coooold 45 degrees when I left Wisconsin)—well, let’s just say, as a newbie author, I think I’ve been spoiled as far as book festivals go!
And then…we all headed home. It was a whirlwind trip! I’m back in Wisconsin today, ready to share all my fun times with my own tweens this week.
