First Annual Author Celebration & Reading a Great Success!

2014 Author CelebrationWe had so much fun hearing from our members’ books at the first annual Mid-Valley Author Celebration and Reading last Thursday, 5 June!

We heard so many great stories by our readers and encourage you to check them out!

Many thanks to our readers for sharing their stories with us and for their generosity in giving away books for the drawing. (We wanted to win them all for ourselves!)

Many thanks as well to our attendees for supporting our members and for supporting our Books for Kids program with many delightful children’s books. We’re taking a pile of books to the Relief Nursery this week!
