And Lynn and Borders welcomed me and my friends from The Debs for a holiday event in 2009. (That's Cynthea Liu, Lara Zielin, Aprilynne Pike, me, Darcy Vance, and Saundra Mitchell).
Kristin and I were regulars at the Bolingbrook Borders, doing the Teacher Appreciation Days and Reader Meet Author events. And they always spoiled us with samples from the cafe.
I've had so many happy memories at this store. I'm just so sad to think there will be no more events for me at my favorite Borders. I'll keep doing events at other stores and libraries but this Borders is like home. :-(
