Thursday April 1st brought over a hundred students, readers, and fans to Todd VanHooser's book release party held at Desert Edge High School. Attendees enjoyed live music and food with the opportunity to meet the author and mingle with members of the Laughing Moon team, which supports Todd's fantasy series and tabletop game.
Excerpts from Todd's new novel, The Lamplighter Collection, were read aloud to the audience throughout the evening by Todd, publisher Don Jacques, and even one of Todd's students from Desert Edge, much to the enjoyment of the packed house. Many of the stories included in the collection have been used in the classroom for several years, making the high school a perfect venue for the release party. Seeing such an overwhelming response, it is clear that our state's high school students do not lack the capabilities to get involved in reading, they have merely been waiting for the inspiration and motivation to do so.
