zinnia and the bees at green bean books in portland!

First stop on my trip up the West Coast last week was the gem of a bookstore, Green Bean Books in Portland! (Hi Green Bean!) I hope you get a chance to hang out on their porch someday. I have so many special memories of the weekend there, and so many talented kidlit folks live nearby too. Huge thanks to Jennifer and Earl for hosting me, and to Zoey Abbott Wagner for taking pretty much all of these photos! I gave a presentation and then we made yarn pompoms. (If you’d like to make some, instructions here.)

zinnia and the bees launch!

Last Saturday was the launch for Zinnia and the Bees at Skylight Books! And Michelle Sterling of Avery and Augustine (you’ve gotta check out her Instagram) and the Little Lit Book Series was kind enough to lend her talents and take photos. You see, aside from being a reading expert, she’s also a photographer!

Here’s a visual recap of the event, which was the best ever (as Zinnia would say). Many thanks to all those who were able to attend as well as those sending support from afar. I felt it and appreciate it very much! And a big shout out to my dear friend Bonnie at Thirsty for Tea for Zinnia and the Bees treats of my dreams!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you’d like to get your own signed copy of the book, you can order through Skylight Books and make a note of that in the checkout—that way, they’ll send you a signed one straight to you from my hometown! And many thanks!
