First Book

One of the things we'll do while we're in NYC, attending the BEA, ie the Book Show, will be to visit the First Book Booth. These great authors donate their time and books for this great cause.

Great books are like great friends. They change the way we look at the world and we are never the same again. For every visitor to First Book's booth, one new book will be donated to a child in need. You will also find the following friends of First Book signing copies of their latest books:
