Would You Rather? Come in and meet the Turn the Page Brigade in a revealing session of the popular game. Readers will choose questions from the bowl and put them to the authors, where we will have to be truthful, even if it hurts. Or we could answer as one of our characters, you never know! This is also your opportunity to have books signed and pick up copies ahead of the crowd.

10 a.m. to 11 a.m.

Books on the Brain. J. J. Lore brings her craft kung fu. Readers who attend this session will use TPB book pages to create exuberant floral headbands. Only your imagination and the hot glue gun will limit the grandeur of your millinery. For those looking for a more restrained project, pencil toppers will also be available.
