Our fifth grade jugglers
Our middle school chimes group
Our ukulele and harp ensemble
And our teachers relaxing in the cafe
But the greatest part for me was meeting Danette Haworth, a local author that has recently published her first book "Violet Raines Almost Got Struck By Lightning". See my review here and my interview with her here. We were lucky enough to get her to do a "meet and greet" at the same time as our event, and I think we spent most of the time chatting about becoming a writer, her current blog tour, other Florida authors, and of course our obsession with Adam Lambert, the hottest thing that has hit American Idol in years. Danette's sister even kept us company! Here are some pictures of Danette:
I'm very excited because Danette is in the process of writing her second novel "Hotel of Blueberry Goodness". She's just finished her first manuscript, and is on pace for her release in 2010. I will be first in line!
