Saturday, 17 November 2018. Barnes & Noble hosted another book fair for us at their Mesilla Valley store. We’ll be getting gift card and/or cash, based on sales that date to customers who identified us at the cash register…or even through tomorrow, the 22nd, online, with coupon code 12437737.
We had many activities in their children’s department for young and old: face-painting by Bleu Knight and Ruba Mohammed, Harry Potter crafts by Charlotte Gard, book reading by Andrea Camunez, calligraphy by Chen Yan of the Confucius Institute, singing in Spanish and Chinese by many of our students (who rehearsed many times with teachers Elizabeth Brasher, Yulin Zhang, Arielle Lane, and Kelly Lin), and a science demo by Vince Gutschick. Other help was provided by Duke Gard, Marv King, Frank and Jana Holguin, Mark Myers, Lisa Siino, and Huaqing Cai. I hope I’m not overlooking anyone! A good time was had by all.
