Good Day Folks!
Back in January my local fabulous Library Director asked me if I could bring authors to our small city for the Summer Reading Program Kick Off Party. I said sure. So I called my friend Diane and asked if she would help me with this. She said sure.
Well then I found out their is no money for it in the budget. All the money was already budgeted for the program. I needed tents, tables, chairs and promotional items around $500. I had another wonderfully lady contact me who wanted to help organize the event. Kristy has been a huge help too. We came up with a sponsor the event program it. Wow, it has been very successful. I had the money we needed in less than 3 weeks. I would like to thank all our businesses, FSU, and others in Big Rapids who stepped up and encourage reading. Remember to buy local they support and donate to all our functions and needs.
The event is coming together very nicely. I have 25 authors coming from all over Michigan. By the way if there are any Michigan authors who want to attend I still have some spots open under the tent. Just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
The event is going to be so much fun. I have gone every year. At Big Rapids Community Library June 12, Noon to 2PM. We will be kicking off The Summer Reading Program. This event is open to anyone adults and children.
Besides having 25+ Michigan Authors to meet and greet. You can sign up for the summer reading program, have some refreshments. There will be activities, crafts, and door prize drawings going on during the entire event. Don’t forget pick up the summer schedule for all the programs, movies, crafts, animals, and other activities for all. I can’t wait to meet the other authors and all the people who come to the party. Then afterwards hope to see many of you enjoying our downtown or events at Ferris State University. Our Library is the bridge that connects our University and Downtown Big Rapids.
Well back to working on this event. Hope to get back to writing again in June. Kids I hope to have adventure 6 done by the end of the summer and adults hoping to have my New Moon Brethren complete 1st draft finished and begin edits by the end of the summer. I plan to dedicate time for writing at the end of June.
