A Successful Book Launch

On December 2nd, the Treehouse Coffee House was set up for the big day. Tables were arranged, signs displayed, books placed strategically on the table.

Mieke Zamora-Mackay made sure that all the authors practiced their handwriting for the busy day of book signing ahead.

The books were flying off the shelves!

                 The joint was jumping with well wishers who had showed up to give their support. 

It was a packed house.

The authors read stories, and prizes were given away. There was lots of fun to be had 
(and books to be signed)!

The editors and authors are so thankful for all the support of our family, friends, and the community! There is another book signing and sale at the Audubon Library on 239 Oakland Ave. on December 6th from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.

Thanks for everyone who participated to make our launch party such a huge success!
