Please join us for a very special event at
Sidekick Coffee & Books!
We are excited to celebrate John Robert Allman's new book A is for Audra! This stunning picture book was recently featured on one of BuzzFeed's gift lists and Indie Kids' Next List. Books will be available for purchase at Sidekick.
In addition to Allman reading from and signing copies of his book, vocalists from Fryvecind Voice Studio/Nolte Academy will be performing musical theatre pieces. It's going to be a fun and festive time!
See you there!
