July Events - Where's Waldo and Meg?
|Look for this poster in July!|
It makes sense that I will be wandering from city to city because the popular Where's Waldo book series celebrates it's 25 Anniversary this July. Bookstores all over the country are hosting Where's Waldo events in honor of the sneaky guy who likes to hide. Most events involve searching for Waldo in local stores and then returning for a prize at the bookstore. Check your local bookstore to see if they are participating! Need to find one? Click Here
In the meantime, check out the events in some cities and bookstores I may be visiting this summer!
