Anna Church says "Giddings Townspeople are the best!"

posted Sep 19, 2012, 5:42 PM by txword wrangler

I got back Friday night from a wonderful time at the Texas Word Wrangler Festival. The town of Giddings, TX were very gracious hosts! The town welcomed us with open arms. I had a great time presenting to children at Giddings Elementary Thursday and handed out flyers, 150 book markers,  and coloring contest pages. On Friday, I handed out more than 300 book markers, 400 business cards and all 200 coloring contest pages to children that were bussed in from private schools in the area. I was excited to be asked again to do a mini-presentation to some of the private school children on Friday at the library. I sold over 20 books and had a great time answering children's interviewed questions and autographing book markers. Met many great authors and people at the festival. 

I think the only thing I would change is have it on Friday and Saturday. I had some frantic parents that came around 5:00 pm on Friday to purchase autographed books while I was taking my table down. They apologized for being so late but they could not get off work any earlier. 

Oh and I can't forget the great time that I had at the Thursday Gala Dinner, a great deal of the townspeople were involved setting it up and recognized that night. 

 I am looking forward to coming back next year with my new book and I will be more prepared for the children that visited the library on Friday.
