Wild Things at Reader Riot 2017 #ReaderRiot #amwriting #writerslife #Alabama @FLPLibrary @al.com

Monsters, Clifford the Big Red Dog, and Curios George came out for the first ever Reader Riot this weekend, as well as tons of readers and authors.

I spent time talking with some young people who wanted to be writers and had lots of questions about that, and fellow authors shared their experiences in publishing. What a great day.

My colleague and fellow author Amber Tran carpooled to the event. Here’s Amber’s booth. She had the corner post and did an excellent job calling people into the vendor’s alley to browse for books.

Thanks to everyone at the Florence-Lauderdale Public Library for hosting this great event and everyone who came out and made the day a success!
