Children’s Book Authors at the In Print Book Fair

The In Print World of Words Book Fair on Saturday, October 19th at Barnes and Noble in Cherry Valley will feature a trio of children’s book authors in the Kid’s Section.

Toni Rocha is a retired newspaper reporter with four published books. She is also the medical writer for the Northwest Quarterly magazine.  She will be featured from 10:00 to 12:00 in the children’s section, reading and signing copies of her books.

Lu Clifton’s debut novel, Freaky Fast Frankie Joe, received the following awards: Friends of American Writers Juvenile Award, Best of the Best Books for Great Kids in 2013, Texas Bluebonnet Master List, the Nebraska Juvenile Golden Sower Award, the South Carolina Children’s Book Award, and the Notable Children’s Book award for 2013.  She will read and be available to sign copies of her book from 12:30 to 2:30.

Lucy Rivas-Enriquez has worked in human resources for seventeen years. Her experience helped her learn about people, diversity, and the human condition. Writing has always been a part of her life, and she weaves real-life experiences and lessons into her children’s books. Topics are aimed at helping kids deal with acceptance, differences, adoption, and many other feelings foster and adopted children face. Lucy and her husband grew their family through adoption from foster care. Proceeds from Lucy’s books are donated to the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption (DTFA). DTFA is a non-profit organization that helps to find forever families for children waiting to be adopted from foster care in North America.  Lucy will be reading her book and signing copies from 2:30 to 4:30.

The Book Fair begins at 10:00 and runs until 5:00.  A portion of all purchases made at Barnes and Noble – in store on online – using the code 11156932 will go to In Print, allowing us to continue our support of writers and writing activities.
