Rolling Readers Authors and Artists Fundraiser

June 19, 2010

The New Children’s Museum

Silent auction

Many thanks to Rolling Readers for hosting a wonderful fundraiser for a worthy cause.  The Rolling Readers inspire children to love reading through their read-aloud programs at area schools. Through their program, they distribute 18,000 books a year to school children.

They had a silent auction, which included spa gift baskets, travel tickets, theme park tickets, and some really wonderful  original art painted by local children who have benefited from the Rolling Reader program. One of my favorites was a depiction of David from David Shannon’s “No David” book.

I signed copies of BAIT FOR LUNCH. Other authors and illustrators were there signing books as well.  It was great meeting everyone!
