Mountains to the Sea: Monster Book Lunch

Spread the word! Last year’s author lunch was fun times for all (in its Bubblegum Bash incarnation), this year’s promises to be even more exciting. Basically a chance for kids and teens to sit around yapping to writers. And there is food. *fondly recalls the chicken nuggets*
