For the Love of Libraries: Lunch & Keynote with Dan Gemeinhart (12:00–1:45 pm)

Dan Gemeinhart lives in a small town smack dab in the middle of Washington state with his wife and three young daughters. He was lucky and grateful to be a teacher-librarian in an elementary school for fourteen years, where he got to share awesome books with awesome kids. Dan has written five middle grade novels: Scar Island, The Honest Truth, Some Kind of Courage, Good Dog, and the upcoming The Remarkable Journey of Coyote Sunrise.
Included with registration.
