Our second Read Brave day with Rainbow Rowell took place at the St. Paul Central Library. Two high school groups attended - OWL (Open World Learning Community) and SPCPA (St. Paul Conservatory for Performing Arts) - but it was also open to the public (including some fans who drove 7 hours to see Rainbow!).
Rainbow spoke with the group about Eleanor & Park. Both school groups had read the book as part of Read Brave.
Then Rainbow took questions from the crowd.
After the Q&A, Rainbow was available for book signing.
Signing stock and the lampshade for the store.

Thank you to SPPL for the opportunity to participate in Read Brave again this year, and to Rainbow for being the 2014 author for Read Brave!
