Launch Part-Tay

— feeling excited
Rooting for Rafael Rosales - Kurtis Scaletta

My friend, Kurtis Scaletta's new book, "Rooting for Rafael Rosales" is released today. 

 

The launch party celebration for his newest middle-grade novel is today (Tuesday, April 25, 2017) at Red Balloon Bookstore, Minneapolis, so if you're in the Twin Cities, get on out. Bring your younger friends. Buy a copy or two. Donate one to your local school library. You know, support my friend AND literature.

While you're at it, look up Kurtis Scaletta's backlist. His books are great reads for the younger set, and I've enjoyed them, too.
