Meet Peter H. Reynolds for Judy Moody Day! We’re celebrating the new book “Judy Moody, Mood Martian” and you’re invited! Judy takes up the hobby of “finger knitting” to help keep her mind off her moods, and we’re going to be right with her, finger knitting the day away! With the help of our friends at Sheepskate Yarn and Craft down the block, we’ll learn this handy fidget craft AND see if we can knit our way from store to store. Come prepared to have a blast! All Welcome.
