The whole night was incredible! There were about 65 attendees and not only did we run out of the library's order of books, but exhausted my extra stock as well. After the book signing, there was a short gathering at the Reeger homestead with refreshments, and everyone seemed to have a great time.
Thank you, thank you, thank you a thousand times to everyone who came out to the event in support of the book. Riverside is full of amazing people and it was such a thrill to be back among childhood friends and neighbors. If you ever visit Riverside, please stop by and support the library as it truly is a magical place.
