Book Carnival Wrap-Up

We hope that you enjoyed last weekend's Book Carnival as much as we did! We had 14 authors reading from their books, and meeting their young fans. Almost 400 people came to this year's Book Carnival, and generously donated 70 children's books to Minneapolis Public Schools' ECSE program. And thanks to the generosity of Bellwether Media and the Minnesota Humanities Center, we were able to give away almost 200 free books to our young attendees!

Thank you all for coming out to this great event! Thank you to the authors for sharing their time! A big thanks to all of our volunteers. And a huge thank you to all of our generous sponsors!

Jesse, Thank you for your fabulous work getting this event onto the radio and for the Bellweather books connection. It was obvious that the even was well-planned - and executed. I love the online work you have done. Thanks.
