Children ages 8 to 18 are invited to submit a question they would like to ask Lemony Snicket. A winner from each library branch will be randomly selected to receive a copy of one Lemony Snicket’s books from the All the Wrong Questions series. From the selected winners, one grand prize winner will receive two VIP tickets to see Daniel Handler (A.K.A. Lemony Snicket) at the Gallo Center for the Arts on Sunday, November 16, 2014.
