A fabulous event shared by Trudi Trueit:
Author Trudi Trueit (Secrets of a Lab Rat series) will be sharing the stage with graphic novels created by elementary students from Soundview School in Lynnwood (no, that's not a typo - they wrote them! How cool is that?). On Saturday, May 18th, 2013 from 1–3pm, the students will be sharing graphic novels together with Trudi, who will read from and sign her latest tween title, Stealing Popular, at the Alderwood Barnes & Noble.
Kids who attend can also win prizes, like tote bags, audio CDs, and a T-shirt signed by Trudi's Lab Rat illustrator, Jim Paillot! (Again: How cool is that?)
Bonus: A portion of all purchases made in the store that day will go to benefit Soundview, an independent school that serves children from preschool through 8th grade.
Trudi writes, "We’re hoping for a strong turnout from our educator and writer friends! These students have worked so hard on their novels, and we’d love for them to read in front of a full audience and feel for a moment what it’s like to be big-time authors!"
And, once more: HOW COOL IS THAT?????
