By the way, the Saturday event in the park had over 2,100 visitors - by far a new record for KABAM. I don't yet know how many hundreds of additional kids and adults were directly impacted by author visits and presentations before Saturday. Not to mention the about 100 or so that attended the Poetry Slam in downtown Kingman Thursday evening.
Again, thank you all!!!
A special thank you goes out to the people of Kingman and surrounding communities who gave us such a great turnout on Saturday--a new record!
