Saturday, March 28th was a busy day for me. From 10-11 am I was the guest author at Max Cremas’ Expresso and Coffee Bar which is located on the Pricetown Road in Alsace Township. I belong to ‘Locals at the Max’ which is a group of local self-published authors who support one another in our efforts to promote our books. The audience was positive, encouraging and supportive as I shared my writing journey and also read The Easter Bunny Brothers. I feel very fortunate to be a part of this group of talented authors. Copies of my book are available for sale at Max Crema’s.
Then immediately afterward, I went to the PA German Cultural Heritage Center at 22 Luckenbill Road in Kutztown for their Easter on the Farm. For those of you who have never attended one of their events, you are really missing a walk down memory lane. Besides the historical PA German farmhouse, barn, spring house, one-room school house and grounds, the place is a buzz with free activities for kids- a petting zoo, train rides, pony rides, wagon rides, two egg hunts, crafts for children, demonstrations, craft vendors, and food.
Inside the one-room school, I had a table selling my two books. I also read The Easter Bunny Brothers to a packed school house at 2:00. I loved when the kids laughed when Bobby announces his new invention- The Egg Mobile. There was also a jar of jelly beans for a Guess How Many Jelly Beans Contest. The winner was Haley Kohler from Shoemakersville who guessed 330 only 5 away from the actual count of 335. Congratulations Haley!
