DC Loves to Read!
The flier said, "Come express your love of reading at Northeast Library by participating in these events." I chose to attend the "Getting your Work Published" event. It was Saturday, October 2, 2010. This program was one of many in DC Public Library's First Annual Read-In.
The guest speaker, Joyce Fletcher, was passionate and knowledgeable. After the speaker walked us all through the process of self-publishing, the attendees were eager to share their thoughts on books and book publishing. One young man piped up with a question of why books are not rated. Fletcher, a librarian and author, explained that books are categorized by age.
