This weekend I was one of 45 authors to participate in the Sacramento Library Foundation’s “Authors on the Move” fundraising event. They raised over $110,000 toward their summer reading program for children’s literacy.
This marked the third time I’ve been invited to the event, and each time I’ve enjoyed the festivities. Patrons pay $200 each to have a wonderful 4-course dinner with 3 authors — authors rotate between courses. With 8 people at the table, we have the opportunity to answer any questions they might ask about our book or writing. It’s truly fun, though by the end of the night I’m exhausted! The Avid Reader, a local bookstore, sells books at the event, and nearly all of my Lucy Kincaid #7 COLD SNAP was sold. Yeah! (Too bad NOTORIOUS wasn’t out yet!)
