Guys Read: A Wild and Crazy Night!

Swagger Muffins with Jon Scieszka and Mac Barnett
What a night! Jon Scieszka, Tom Angleberger, Cece Bell, Mac Barnett, Jory John , and even a surprise appearance by Jon Klassen.  Lots of laughter, lots of book talk, and lots of orange. Although not all of the Swagger Muffins (the official chapter name for our Guys Read Group) were present, those that were made quite an impression with their t-shirts and their excitement. Now that all of the boys are in middle school I was wondering if the group might fizzle out. Nope. Proud to say the Swagger Muffins are going strong!


Camille was especially excited about having the chance to meet Cece Bell. We did a collaborative sewing project inspired by El Deafo and were happy to have it finished just in time for presenting to Cece.

It doesn't matter how many author events I attend, I am always blown away by the power of humor, creativity, and good people. If you ever have the chance to hear/see any of these fabulous authors. Do not hesitate. Take your kids, take your neighbors, or just go by yourself. I promise, it will do you good.
