Denver area residents, please join me THIS EVENING!
I’m thrilled and honored to be among some awesome children’s authors reading from their books at the kick-off event for Denver’s chapter of “First Book.”
If you’re not familiar with them they advocate for children’s literacy by providing under-privileged kids (who can’t afford their First Book,) with their First Book. You can check out more about them on their website:
Here’s what they have to say about themselves and more on the Event:
