Luckily for A, last weekend S#2 was not busy. S#2 is a children's librarian and she was very excited to go and she was very excited to take A, because she knows how much A loves to read.
The lineup for BooksmART was amazing. They had Jack Gantos, 2012 Newbery Award winner, Chris Raschka, 2012 Caldecott Award winner, Rebecca Stead, 2010 Newbery Award winner, and more!
The day started with a scavenger hunt.
Finally found the clock, not the grandfather clock

Then they got to meet some authors and get autographs.
When You Reach Me - Rebecca Stead
Then they got to listen to some authors speak.

They all said that Jack Gantos was funny. I'm disappointed that we read his book from the library. I wish we owned it and could have had it signed. Look at how he signed books for Mrs Larremore!
I'm disappointed that I missed such a good day. I'll have to check the DMA calendar next year and make sure I keep that day free.
