Author Event

Before I tell you about this fantastic Author Event, I need to announce that we have a winner from the LDS Author Giveaway Hop. Congratulations to "Books Are Sanity" who will be receiving a signed copy of 
The Alias by Mandi Tucker Slack!  As always, winners are selected by random.

Author Event

This afternoon I am going to take a little drive (2 hours) to the Salt Lake valley to attend the first ever Author Event night hosted by Endeavor Hall and Taylorsville City Arts Council! I am so excited to be participating in this! This is going to be such a fun evening and they are packing it all into 2 1/2 hours.


Check out the line up of participating authors: Clint Johnson, Mette Harrison, Kristyn Crow, Anne Bowen,
Tess Hilmo, Tom Haraldsen, Thal Dixon, Jayanne Sindt, Stacey Williams, Jennifer Clark, Linda Garner, Lesa McCullough, Carolee Griffin, Brenton Barwick, Sydney Salter, and Eric Patten.

Yes, I get to be one of those authors! I'm even giving a presentation on helping kids develop a love for reading, writing, and creating their own stories. It's going to be a lot of fun. Due to time constraints, I have to keep my presentation to 15 minutes, but I can do that. I'll just talk realllly fast! I won't complain because they are fitting a lot into such a short time period. Here's their schedule:


  • 6-7 pm author book signing & mini classes
  • 7 p.m. author panel
  • 7:30 - 8:15 p.m. Literacy Game Show

For more details take a look on their website. http://www.endeavorhall.org/

My presentation will start at 6 in the small conference room upstairs.
If you can, come and hang out with us tonight!
May 18, 6 p.m.-8 p.m.
Taylorsville City Hall,  2600 West Taylorsville Blvd. (off 5400 S)

  1. That is great you did that. It looks like you had some great authors there. I have friends whose kids go to that school.

FREEDOM TO READ BOOK SALE

If you like to read as much as I do, then you cheer and spontaneously burst into song and dance whenever a book sale comes along. Seriously,...
