Festival to Go at Children's School of Rochester, #15: Rochester, NY - October 21, 2014

As part of the Rochester Children's Book Festival's Festival-to-Go program, authors visited the Children's School of Rochester (School #15). (Also volunteering, but not pictured, author Mylisa Larsen.)

Authors start gathering in the library with members of Altrusa--who have generously donated books to the participating school libraries for ten years now!
