She’s baaaack!

Mollie was delighted to attend Book Expo America, but she’s glad to be back. She picked up a lot of advanced copies of books for the library, so FEAR NOT! we will have lots of exciting titles for y’all next year.

While she didn’t get to meet everyone on her list at BEA, she did get to meet some notable authors, such as Lemony Snicket, R.L. Stine, Gregory Maguire, John Scieska, Jonathan Tropper, Jeff Kinney, Jason Segel, and Anjelica Huston, among others. Tiddles even got to make new friends!
