Ann read "Justa Bear" at the Reading on the Green event at the Kraft/Nabisco LPGA Tournament in Rancho Mirage, California.  Over one thousand school children came to hear stories at the children's event which was sponsored by Kraft/Nabisco and BookPals to encourage children's literacy.

Ann read "Justa Bear" and presented the book to the Jack Kemp Community School in Lloydminster, Sask. The school is named after her father and is the home of the "original Justa Bear".
