When we arrived, the local library was already packed with fans of all ages. We expected a partial reading with the usual talk and Q&A session. What we got was so much more! The author not only shared hilarious personal stories and her inspiration behind her work, but she also entertained the crowd with a reading of Class Action, completely in character! The audience was frequently laughing; the children entranced.
After the presentation was complete, the lines began to form for the personalized signing. Being at the end of the line, we had a LONG wait. A librarian came to the rescue to entertain the children (and parents!). Despite the wait, my children were excited and thrilled to meet Schachner. And, they each left with a special treasure . . . . a personalized greeting and illustration from the author herself! Just take a peek for yourself! As you can see, the wait was completely worth it!
Have you had the pleasure of meeting Skippyjon Jones or his creator yet?
