If you’re local to Atlanta, come out on August 1 to the Refugee Resettlement and Immigration Services of Atlanta‘s (RRISA) Red, White and New: Recognizing America’s Newest Citizens. The fundraiser is to be held at the Mason Murer Fine Art Gallery and will benefit RRISA and Refugee Family Services.
One of the events of the evening will be a silent and live auction. Local Atlanta individuals and corporations have donated items to be auctioned off. Carmen has donated brunch with her and six of your friends, so be sure to make it to the event to donate and help two great organizations.
We are excited to announce that Carmen will be participating in the 2014 Decatur Book Festival! The DBF is the largest independent book festival in the country and one of the five largest overall. You definitely don’t want to miss it!

Our very own Cheshire Cheese Cat (a middle-grade mystery set in Dickens’ London) received starred reviews from Publisher’s Weekly, School Library Journal, and Kirkus, when first published in 2011. Since that time it has garnered an E.B. White Honor Award, a Cybil Award, a Parent’s Choice Gold Award, among other lovely honors. STILL. We admit to being all a-buzz about making the nomination list in our very own home state. This is one of those special awards that is voted on by children. Huzzah–as Mr. Charles D. would say!
