Hudson Children’s Book Festival Fundraising Cocktail Party

hudson book festivalDale Stewart reports from Ghent, NY.
On Saturday, March 16, the Red Barn Roadside Bistro played host to the Hudson Children’s Book Festival Fundraising Cocktail Party. Teachers served prosecco and passed canapés and rice balls to the attendees, who’s contributions went towards helping a young student who might not be able to buy a book (or two) at the upcoming Hudson Children’s Book Festival on May 4th. “The Festival also provides a free book for every child that attends so that they can have the special experience of buying a book and having it autographed by the author,” says Red Barn owner and “Hudson Reads” reading mentor Chris Jones, pictured left with Lisa Dolan, Jennifer Clark, and Susan Simon.
