Yeah. Have you met *** many people who have taken time off during the pandemic to write books? Absolutely. There were so many authors debuting during the pandemic. They had time to, uh, you know, sit in their thoughts because everyone was stuck inside and *** a lot of them started with children’s books, some started with their novels and then, you know, 2021 it was a little, you know, uncertain about doing book events, but they got the edit done and now they’re ready to show us what they’ve been up to work. OK. And if I want to have more information about the cost of the rental, any other information about this event, where should I do? Yeah.
