Just got back from an amazing event in Chicago, put on with a collection of area libraries, including the Bartlett Public Library called Battle of the Books! The audience was full of a couple hundred kids who were thrilled to talk about books and especially Abe Lincoln Crosses a Creek. Thanks to everyone who made this such a great event. A few pictures from the night.
The winning team from Centennial School, above, the winners got a copy of John Brown: His Fight for Freedom for their school library.
A view of the audience before I went on- these kids were truly awesome. They love books!
