Event Highlights:

  • Free Autographed Books: Each child attending will receive a free autographed copy of Laura Smith’s book, “I Am Loved.”
  • Interactive Readings: The event will feature readings by Rotarian Ryan Igbanol and Laura Smith herself. Smith will read from her book, “You’ve Got Dragons,” which helps children understand and manage their fears and anxieties, and “I Am Loved,” which addresses making mistakes and problem-solving.
