I had a wonderful time at the event. Lots of enthusiastic children sharing their love for books. This was my second year participating in this fun event. Thank you very much United Way, Tesoro, Valero, and other generous sponsors for making this event possible.
It was a fun filled event at the OC Mix in Costa Mesa with my fellow authors Dennis Yang, Alva Sachs, MaDonna Waszak, Ryan Afromsky, and Cori Paul. The weather was sunny and beautiful and being in the company of these wonderful children’s book authors made the day even better.
It was a great event of multiculturalism and books. I had a great time with my fellow author Gladys Elizabeth Barbieri.
Please join me for this fun event celebrating children of the world through books, exhibits, and other fun activities.
