Get a Clue - Feb 1, 2013

 

Love a good whodunit? Join us on February 1 and solve some mysterious mysteries with seven middle grade authors, while learning a little bit about what makes up a good story.

Books will be for sale through Once Upon a Time Bookstore and time will be set aside for autographs. Snacks and drinks will be available (for a small cash donation) throughout the event.

Solve the mystery first and you could win the secret prize! (What could it be?)

Costumes–ahem!–disguises are encouraged but not required.
