Events this week in Florida

all-three-coversHello, friends! I’m excited to be heading to the Orlando area this week to be on a panel at the ILA conference. And I’ve also got two book events set up that are free and open to the public. Especially after Skyping with so many Florida classrooms this year, I can’t wait to meet young readers in Orlando and DeLand in person.

You can find the details about all three appearances on my events page. But I’ll share the open-to-the-public events here as well:

Barnes & Noble Waterford Lakes – Orlando, FL
Saturday, July 15, 2pm*
Summer Book Bash! (with Christina Farley and Ammi-Joan Paquette)
Join us for our Summer Book Bash featuring an interactive, fun-filled afternoon with three amazing authors of books for young readers: Tara Dairman, Christina Farley, and Ammi-Joan Paquette. Activities, reading, Q&A and plenty of fun for young readers! Ideal for ages 9-15, open to the public. Proceeds benefit Orange County Library- Alafaya. Check out our Facebook event for more details!

*Note: The fun kicks off at 1pm with local broadcaster and children’s book author Amy Sweezey; the middle-grade panel with me, Ammi-Joan, and Christina will begin at 2.

DeLand Regional Library – DeLand, FL
Monday, July 17, 3-4:30pm
I’m so excited to present about my writing process for All Four Stars and my journey to becoming a published author, AND to lead a fun creative writing workshop for kids, tweens, and teens! There won’t be book sales, btu I’ll be happy to sign any books readers bring in from home. (Well, as long as I wrote them!)

 

Hope to see you!
