Well, that was an awful lot of fun.
Yesterday at Barnes & Noble we held our second Book Fair, and it was a huge success! Hundreds of Christmas shoppers donned red stickers in support of Unbound, and a percentage of their purchases will go to helping us meet the various costs and expenses of putting on the festival. We had a veritable legion of wonderful volunteers who manned the tables, did free gift wrapping, and other assorted tasks to make the day run smoothly.
Our guest prince and princess did a beautiful job of reading to the children, and local authors Eric Praschan, Carolyn Mulford, Carrie Koepke, and Alex George read from their work and engaged in entertaining discussion with the crowds.
As always, huge thanks to Barnes & Noble for the support - especially the tireless Lisa Loporto.
And don't forget, you can still support the festival for the next five days by shopping online and entering the code 11572492 at the checkout.
Thanks so much to everyone who participated yesterday!
