OMG at Foothill Knolls Elementary

We had a great time at the second Get a Clue event at Foothill Knolls Elementary School in Upland. It was an amazing evening where over 150 kids got to meet 10 different middle-grade novelists (including us!) and learn about their books. Ms. Beth Stone and her third grade class did a spectacular job sponsoring OMG: The Glitter Trap. From the door decoration to the bulletin board full of Glitter Trap inspired artwork to our swag buckets chock full of thoughtful gifts the night held one wonderful surprise after another.

The event itself was a ton of fun. We got to meet 9 groups of third to sixth graders. They had really good questions for us and were great fun to talk to. At the book signing after the event we met actual readers of our books and hopefully future readers too. It was just a terrific night!
