Thank you to everyone who stopped by our booth at Idaho Book Extravaganza
last weekend! We loved meeting so many passionate writers and readers. In case you missed it, here are some highlights from the two-day event.
Top 50 Idaho Author Awards
The Cabin was overjoyed to see so many of our members and supporters recognized as amongst the top 50 authors in Idaho.
Recipients included Alan Heathcock (Cabin board member), Alan Minskoff (founding member of The Cabin and Writing Camps teacher), Anthony Doerr (Cabin supporter), Bill English (Cabin supporter and former Writing Camps teacher), and our very own Executive Director, Dede Ryan!
Congratulations to everyone who took home one of these awesome trophies.
The Cabin Booth
Thank you to all of the volunteers (Connie, Ciara, Joyce, Patricia, Heidi, Shane, Laura, Julie and Diane) who staffed our booth on Friday and Saturday. Your enthusiasm for The Cabin and our programs came through every time someone stopped by to chat, and we're proud to be represented by such an articulate and devoted group of people.
We had a blast coming up with new materials for the booth, including “Poetry Niblets”—tiny pieces of paper with some of our favorite excerpts from the upcoming Words Work Wonders anthology, penned by Summer Writing Camps 2011 students. Our booth also displayed photos from camps, lots of brochures and flyers, books and posters, and a bowl of Halloween candy.
If you missed out, we still have niblets (of both the poetry and candy varieties) left over, so stop by The Cabin and see us for a treat!
