Second Annual Children’s Book Festival

Here is a brief reminder that Friends of the Leonard H. Axe Library will hold its Second Annual Children's Book Festival, from 11:30 AM to 4 PM on Saturday, March 31st , 2007 in the East Lobby of the Weede Gymnasium. It will be held in conjunction with the annual Young Authors' Conference. Authors from all over the United States, Australia and England have donated representative samples of their work usually signed and frequently decorated with a small drawing or a note. Some recent new additions are "Just Kidding, Sorry!" And "My Secret Bully", by Trudy Ludwig, which are three handy, self help "bully manuals" for the beleaguered nearly middle schooler, and "Mahjong All Day Long", by Ginnie Lo; illustrated by Beth Lo in which these two Chinese American sisters describe their youth spent learning Mahjong at their older relatives' knees.

Representatives from the Friends will be seated in the East Lobby of the Weede gymnasium, just outside the Lance Arena from 11:30AM to 4PM. No books will be sold prior to 11:30 AM. The books are not only signed but are discounted 25 %.
