We’ll be featuring book readings from The Crowded Kingdom and a preview excerpt from the upcoming sequel, The Underground Labyrinth, as part of Tastebuds Kitchen’s Thanksgiving Holiday Camp, on Friday, November 29th, 2013, from 1 PM to 4 PM.  

Campers ages 9 and up get to participate in a wonderful Iron Chef-style camp where the secret ingredient for Thanksgiving is…sweet potatoes!  As the website says,
“Friday’s 1:00pm-4:00pm Camp will include a special book reading and activity from Author Louella Dizon San Juan’s new book “The Crowded Kingdom”, about an enchanting and magical kingdom in the heart of New York City and the two unsuspecting girls who discover it.”
