Past Author Visits

Cecil Castellucci, February 16, 2018

In preparation for Ms. Castellucci's visit we completed a Word Search,  Crossword, Cryptogram, and/or Cosplay Superhero Drawing for raffle ticket(s) and a chance to win Cecil Castellucci's new book Don't Cosplay with My Heart. The raffle drawing took place at the Author's Visit at lunch on Feb. 16 in Titan Center. Nidhi Deshiikan won the raffle.  Ms. Castellucci did not have time to finish answering all the questions posed by the audience at lunch, but she sent her answers.  Photos of the event and questions & answers follow.
