Chocolate & Chat

kc dyer and I had our final four installments of the Terrific Teacher Appreciation Travelling Roadshow at Chapters across Metro Vancouver. The first two were on Sunday, and were in Surrey and Langly. The final two were on Monday, and were at Park Royal and Broadway&Granville.

The staff at Chapters showed us a warm welcome, with a table filled with our books and announcements that let everyone know we were there. The days couldn’t have gone better, with kc and I finishing them off feeling on top of the world!
