And who would have thought that would mean free whoopee pies?  Luckily for us, Sarah Dessen was at the Sweetery truck handing out these sweet treats to her adoring fans. Delicious!

Now, back to business…It was so exciting to see all the new books and meet the amazing authors and illustrators that are here.  This picture is just a taste of what’s to come!  We’ve obviously got a lot of summer reading to do…

We started our day at the Children’s Author Breakfast featuring an incredible lineup that included Katherine Paterson, Julianne Moore, Brian Selznick, Sarah Dessen, and Kevin Henkes.  As always, these events remind us of the important role that books play in all of our lives.  As we were told at a previous BEA, books can be windows to take us to new places or mirrors to reflect our own lives.  They can inspire us and sometimes they can save us.  They can also serve as “gateways” as Julianne Moore said this morning.  One thing that we at Sweet on Books can say with confidence is that READING IS A TREAT!
