The event was attended by over 100 people. JoEllen McCarthy got the event going by introducing each author and having us each do a 3 minute read. Kids set a timer and dinged us when our time was up. I was so worried I wouldn't have enough to read in 3 minutes so was incredibly surprised when the ding came after a page. That 3 minutes sure went fast!
Charles Smith, Jr. wowed everyone during his turn by jumping up onto the stage and reading two poems that took exactly 3 minutes.
Thank you to JoEllen McCarthy, nErDcampLI, and the staff of Northern Parkway Elementary School for creating such an amazing day. I hope to see you again next year!
