Holiday Season Hangout
After working so hard in October and November, it’s time to celebrate our accomplishments. Our December meeting will be a social gathering at one of the local establishments in quaint downtown Montrose near the bookstore. We’ll share our experiences in publishing children’s literature for the year and wish each other our best holiday wishes. Space may be limited. Food or drink purchases will be the individual’s responsibility. Details to come.
