Barnes & Noble Featuring Vanessa Brantley Newton
Hi All, Attached are photos of the Livingston Mall Barnes & Noble Teacher's Appreciation Reception that Vanessa presented at on April 15th. Vanessa was one of two presenters. She spoke first about the impact her teachers had on her and she then shared about being a children's book illustrator, Let Freedom Sing and the awesome opportunity afforded her by Blue Apple Books. Needless to say, after her 17 minute presentation the author's table where she was sitting was rushed by teachers anxious to meet her, purchase the book and book her to speak at their schools.
Deirdra, The host and Communication Specialist for the Livingston Barnes & Noble store, announced shortly thereafter that all the copies of Let Freedom Sing had sold out! Yippee!!! All in all we meet some great educators and the second speaker Cynthia Willis www.cynthiawillis.com was awesome. She is a published children's book author who formerly worked as a text book editor at Scholastic. Have a great day and enjoy the photos.
Fish & Grits Ya'll!
