On Saturday, March 15, I was the “celebrity author” at Book Blast in the Northshore Mall, Peabody, Massachusetts. It was a fun, well-attended event that promoted literacy. I read two of my picture books, played games with the adorable listeners, and answered questions about writing from people of all ages. A blast indeed! Kudos to the Guest Services Dept. for running an ongoing series of entertaining, educational events for kids!
