Can I bring books from home to be signed?
YES! As long as you buy a title from the Blue Willow vendors then you can also bring books from home to be signed.
Do I have to go the whole time?
NO! I f you only have a part of the day available then come for awhile. Chances are that you’ll have so much fun you won’t want to leave.
Do my parents have to be there too?
Teens are welcome to be dropped off and picked up. There will be plenty of adult supervision with teachers and volunteers all around the school to advise and help teens.
How much money should I bring?
The event is free so you don’t have to have any money, however, you may want to bring money for snacks, treats from the food truck and the reason that we are doing this- to get books!
