Reading Rocks in Rockford

Reading Rocks in Rockford is an annual festival of reading, complete with a drum line, a parade of local students dressed up as their favourite book characters, and a bunch of authors. Look at all of us!


The skies were gray, but the rain held off until noon. We authors from SCBWI-Michigan were having such a good time, we didn’t want to leave. But then the thunder rolled, and the radar suggested severe storms coming, so we ended up packing up in a rush and leaving a little early. Thank you, Rockford Rotary, Rockford Community Schools, and Krause Memorial Library for a well-organized and fun event!
