Arizona plans to Rock the Drop!



It's coming! Rock the Drop is coming! So, get those books ready.

What are other folks doing? Check out the happening in Phoenix, AZ. Way cool!


ROCK THE DROP: LOCAL AUTHORS TEAM UP WITH EAST VALLEY TEENS TO CELEBRATE SUPPORT TEEN LITERATURE DAY

Chandler, AZ (March 19, 2012)—On Saturday, April 7, 2012, from 1:00-6:00 p.m., local young adult authors and East Valley teens will come together at Gangplank in Chandler to share a day of free writing workshops, a book sale, and a service project to support teen literacy. At the end of the day, teens will pick up a gently-used young adult book from a donated stash and “drop” it with an identifying bookmark in a high-traffic, public place on Thursday, April 12, 2012, to celebrate Support Teen Literature Day.

Way cool, right? Thanks, Sara! Let us know your plans to rock!
