If you are a kid lit writer in the Richmond area, I hope to meet you at one of your events or bump into you as we celebrate another writer's success. If you are an aspiring writer and you’ve never attended a book launch or author visit, you really owe it to yourself and your fellow writers to go. Enjoy the positive energy in the air. Meet other writers and readers. Take note of the details and learn. I promise you’ll be inspired. And maybe one step closer to hosting your own event someday.
