- Tickets for Barbara Vey’s Reader Appreciation Luncheon (April 27, 2013) in Milwaukee, WI are now available. This is the second annual reader/author get-together that Barbara Vey has organized. I’m very pleased with the low cost for readers ($50 compared to over a hundred dollars for other reader’s conventions!) and that it’s located in the Midwest so I was so thrilled to be invited next year. You can sign up for a specific author’s table when you purchase your tickets. Looking forward to seeing you there!
