Hi Sylvia

would you be able to help me get the word out about the TD Children's Book Read that is coming up May 7 - 14


We are hosting an author at the Kamloops Museum on Saturday May 7 from 11 - 12 noon

last few years we got a few people out and most were adults wanting to learn more about publishing etc.  I thought through the Kamloops writer's group we can get the word out 


attached is the media release that went out today

let me know if you can assist me with getting the word out
