Cedar Springs, MI – This Thursday, July 17th, local author Amanda Litz is slated to host an event at the Grand Rapids Children’s Museum called  AuthorPalooza! — a family–friendly event where kids will receive free books and get the chance to meet other local authors.

Litz created this year’s event – hopefully the first of many – because she wanted to create a unique and personal interactive experience where kids can meet local authors and get free copies of their work – enriching their overall experience with books.

“Traveler’s Trunk Publishing is dedicated to promoting literacy in children, and is excited to find new opportunities that not only help kids discover new books, but also help fuel their desire to read more,” said Litz.

AuthorPalooza! runs from 5:30 to 7:30 pm and coincides with “Family Night” at the Grand Rapids Children’s Muse m – where admission is only $1.50 per person, ages 1 year and above starting at 5:00 pm.
