International Day of the Book
Come out this Sunday to Howard Avenue in Historic Old Town Kensington to the International Day of the Book. There will be live music, author readings, open mic, activities for children and adults, storytellers… and books galore! Local authors, book artists, publishers, booksellers, and literary groups will be present.
I'll be at the "Bonjour Mama" table with three other local DC area French-language authors, Lucas Salomon, Bernadette LeDoux-Brodsky, and Melissa Kerley. Many thanks to Jennifer Fulton for hosting us.
