I went to Chicago this past weekend and attended my first American Library Association (ALA) Convention.
I got to share the excitement with fellow Creston Books author ROBIN NEWMAN. Not only did we share a room, we also shared our first book event with other authors from Creston as well as our Publisher/Editor/Mentor MARISSA MOSS. Below is a photo gallery of some of the highlights from this amazing trip.
