Fresh from Children's Institute - Books for Beginners

You may have noticed Jesse all alone in the store last week (except for a certain Summer Reading Program companion who dropped in ....). I was in New Orleans at the American Booksellers Association Children's Institute with my mom (we got a scholarship to go) and I tell you what - it was amazing.

Hundreds of booksellers and scores of authors and publishers were there. We had a crash course in finances, exciting new books, some heavy-hitting keynote speakers, an envigorating dose of networking, and all kind of ideas for events we would like to try right here in Delta County.

Keep an eye out for teacher appreciation events, story hours, game nights and author visits starting this fall. In the meantime - get your kids into the Summer Reading Program at the Escanaba Public Library! Your kids and I have so much to learn! - RB
