Close Encounters with the Authors concluded on March 23 with a fantastic session. Children’s literature was spotlighted with three purveyors of magic whose books celebrate the ideas of inclusion, perserverance, and doing the right thing . . . and having fun along the way! Many thanks to Ori Gutin, Gennifer Choldenko and moderator Larry Gerston for their willingness to share their journeys as authors and their plans for the future.
