Berkley School District's Read in the Park Event

I am going to be at the following event on Sunday. Look forward to seeing you there.

Berkley School District’s Read in the Park; Sunday, March 21, 1pm-4pm

“There is no substitute for books in the life of a child” – Mary Ellen Chase

Book Beat and The Berkley Area PTSA Council are proud to present the Read in the Park on Sunday, March 21, 2010 at Berkley High School in the Collaborative Center, 2325 Catalpa Drive, Berkley, MI 48072-1897. The Collaborative Center is on north side of the building, facing the courtyard and Catalpa. March is Reading Month and in celebration five Michigan authors and illustrators have been invited to speak and autograph books for children and families. The event is free and open to the public. Books by the participating authors will be available at the event, also we will be sending out an order form for people who cannot attend but would like to purchase books and get them signed. Your purchase of these author’s books at the event, through the book-order form or at the Book Beat is important because it makes these events possible. We thank you for your support in the salute to reading!
