Curious George  onesie + library checkout card socks with grippies shaped like date stamps (We realize this one isn’t technically a book/item combo, but Evelyn’s outfit was on point, so we had to include it.)

Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor, we were able to waive the event fee. We are so grateful and excited!

There will now be just one event, still on October 2, beginning at 5:30 p.m. There will be a meet and greet followed by a signing.

Books will be available for purchase at the event while supplies last.

We do suggest that you purchase a copy from us in advance, so you can bring it to the signing. You can get it here:

Summary from the publisher: 

The Green Ember is a new adventure with an old soul. #RABBITSWITHSWORDS

"A captivating story with sword-bearing rabbits, daring quests, and moments of poignant beauty, The Green Ember is a tale that will delight and inspire young readers to courage and creativity and would make a perfect book for a family to read aloud."

- Sarah Clarkson, author of Read for the Heart and Caught Up in a Story

About The Green Ember

Heather and Picket are extraordinary rabbits with ordinary lives until calamitous events overtake them, spilling them into a cauldron of misadventures. They discover that their own story is bound up in the tumult threatening to overwhelm the wider world. 

Kings fall and kingdoms totter. Tyrants ascend and terrors threaten. Betrayal beckons, and loyalty is a broken road with peril around every bend. 

Where will Heather and Picket land? How will they make their stand?

 

We will have two separate ticketed events:

1. An intimate presentation, followed by a Q&A and book signing

2. A public book signing.

We can't wait to see you there!
