Saturday SCBWI The Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators and First Book joined together for Inside Story at 12 Independent book stores around the world. The Utah Southern Idaho Region was able to participate at the King’s English Book Store in Salt Lake City. Five authors were scheduled but Ann Bowen and Platte Clark came down with the flu so we heard the inside story from Kim Williams-Justesen, Jean Reagan and Bobby Pyron.
Elissa Cruz and I brought refreshments and prizes for the drawing that was held. An original illustration by local illustrator Erika Baird was one of the prizes.
People had their books signed by the authors and enjoyed some time chatting with them after. Thirty Five books will be donated to children who need books by First Book because of the books that were purchased at The King’s English that day. Come and join the fun next year.
