Oh, my…I wish I were in the VA area. I’m not but I know a lot of ALSC members are so I’m sharing this information. It’s FREE! And Jon Scieszka is certainly one of the funniest people I’ve ever met. He’ll be speaking about Guys Read on Monday, April 4 at 7:00 p.m. To register go to http://www.eventbrite.com/event/1324871727/efbnen and note that the program is for adults only. What a fabulous opportunity. I hope someone who goes will share some of Jon’s insights and humor.
