This past Saturday was an exciting opportunity to chat with families about My Friend Jack Has Celiac as I set up a table near the entrance of the East Baton Rouge Parish Library and invited passersby to enjoy some gluten-free snacks and talk about celiac.
Who wants to spend their Saturday morning talking to a stranger about a pesky gastrointestinal/autoimmune disorder?
Honestly, I was afraid the answer to that question was a resounding, "No one." But I was pleasantly surprised when quite a few people were not only polite enough to have a friendly chat, but eagerly asking questions and sharing stories about their own experiences with celiac.
It was truly a privilege to meet so many friendly and engaging people who were supportive of my new children's book about celiac and brave enough to try some gluten-free snacks.
It also warmed my heart to see friends like local photographer Britt Smith, the lovely Ann Allison, and my parents Al and Lorraine.
If you stopped by to chat this past Saturday, thank you for your time and support and I hope you and your family enjoy the new book!
