May 2013 Events


Happy May! Apologies for the slightly late posting of this event calendar. All of us have been very busy here at RNSL headquarters. As you can see, May has a lot to offer for author events. The Ontario Teen Book Fest especially looks like it's going to be really fun. Alethea is definitely going and I am a maybe. If you're in the area, you should totally check out the fun, free event.
