I always feel a little giddy when I’m going to visit the Flying Pig Bookstore in Shelburne, VT. It’s one of those indie bookstores that’s just so special. You know it the minute you walk in the door and see how the store is arranged. Tons of books are face-out for browsing, and there are places to sit and look through them while you decide which one needs to go home with you. Kids clearly come first here, though there’s a great variety of grown-up books, too. On top of that, owners Josie and Elizabeth and their staff always know what book to recommend, whether it’s for my teenaged son, my mom’s book club, or my daughter, who’s read almost everything. They always find the perfect book.
So I’d recommend you visit Flying Pig pretty much any day you can. But I’d especially love it if you could visit for this:
A Family Celebration of Cupcakes, Frogs, Sea Monsters, Secret Plots, and Good Friends!
Flying Pig Bookstore – Saturday, July 9th at 11 am
Eric Luper and I will read at a joint author event, celebrating our latest books, Eric’s JEREMY BENDER VS. THE CUPCAKE CADETS, and my new chapter book, MARTY MCGUIRE, and picture book, SEA MONSTER’S FIRST DAY. There will be a story time for the littlest book lovers, short readings and Q and A for slightly older kids, and cupcakes for all.
If you can’t make it but would like to order personalized, signed copies of any of our books, just call Flying Pig at 802-985-3999 by Friday to place your order. (Shameless self-promotion note: SEA MONSTER’S FIRST DAY would be a great first-day-of-school gift for your favorite student or teacher!)
Hope to see some of you this weekend!
