We're thrilled to host a big celebration today for new books by two of our favorite Austin authors who write for young readers! Nikki Loftin will be here with Wish Girl, a magical, moving story of a young boy who moves to the Texas Hill Country and befriends a "Make-A-Wish" girl undergoing cancer treatment. Jo Whittemore will be here with Colonial Madness, the story of a girl who hopes to win a new home and debt-free life for her and her mother by accepting the challenge of a deceased relative: live for two weeks as in colonial times. It's going to be a great afternoon! Join us!
