*****

I'm not exactly sure yet if I'll be attending any of these events this month. Lena Coakley's book launch for Witchlanders or the Rick Riordan event are potential possibilities though! (I've only read The Lightening Thief, but a couple of my cousins love reading Rick Riordan's novels, so in any case, I'll definitely be letting them know about the upcoming event...)

Will you be looking forward to any of these events as well?
