Celebrating Children’s Book Week with an Indies First Storytime at The Blue Bunny
Independent bookstores across the country are celebrating Children’s Book Week with storytime visits from authors and illustrators on Saturday May 17th. Our National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature, Kate DiCamillo, is spearheading this initiative, asking authors and illustrators to visit their local indie bookstore and read a story that they didn’t write. The Blue Bunny is pleased to welcome children’s picture book author and illustrator Scott Magoon and middle-grade novelist Erin Dionne to join our proprietor Peter H. Reynolds, to read from each other’s works, do drawing demos, Q and A’s, and an interactive art project, before signing books. Scott will be bringing along his newest picture book, Breathe, Erin will be bringing Moxie and the Art of Rule Breaking, and Peter will be sharing his latest book Going Places. All are welcome to attend this author-palooza! FREE!
Tuesday May 20th, 5-7 p.m.
