Like a page out of a comic book, the real life setting up got a comic start. Arriving on Thursday the setup crew arrived an hour to early and tried to set up booths along an open Main Street while traffic was still driving through.

There were how-to one-room classes for all age groups at the Main Street library and in another room inside the library there children book art creators who read and showed excerpts from their books.
