Bring the kids!
The Children’s Corner will feature a full day of readings for small children, arts and crafts, and special appearances by favorite book characters. Readings begin at 10:00 and happen every half-hour, and each child will be given a book. Head upstairs to join the fun!
Proceeds from book sales will benefit literacy campaigns and anti-crime measures in Robeson County.
This cause is very near and dear to my heart. My grandfather could not read, yet I was instilled with a love of reading from as early as I can remember. It was this love of reading that led me to dream big and take on the world. Reading and dreaming the impossible made me believe I could accomplish the impossible, too!
I will be attending Book ‘Em to support this great cause and to answer questions for authors, potential writers and attendees regarding book publishing, website creation, marketing, editing, etc. You can find me at table 101!
Last year, there were 4,000 attendees! It’s not to be missed! See you there!
