While I was at #HACC17 this morning, Dawn presented a proclamation to the Hawaiʻi State Public Library System and read a story to the children at the Surf-a-Book Festival. She enjoyed talking with author Dani HIckman. Dani’s daughter, Jenna, co-authored one of the featured books and was in Dawn’s class in elementary school. She also enjoyed meeting local author David Estes.
