Following that will be two breakout sessions where you can get hands-on workshops with all of our authors. From 4-5:00, there will be a meet and greet reception for you to meet the authors and have them sign books. Books will be available for sale during the meet and greet time. All are welcome at this event, but teens will get priority when space is limited.
