Among those presenting, were Elizabeth Falk, talking to 4th graders. (She is also one of the organizers of the Rochester Children's Book Festival.)

 

I presented to Miss Sanchez's 7th graders.

 

The generous service organization Altrusa had volunteers helping out--plus they provided books by the presenters for the library!

 

Donna Farrell spoke to 1st graders.

 

Donna is the artist who designed this year's Rochester Children's Book Festival's poster and bookmarks.
