It’s that time of year again–I’ll be reading Mother Ghost not once, but twice on Saturday, October 19th! One reading is in the morning and the other is in the afternoon, so no matter when your little monster naps, you should have options.
At 10 a.m., I’ll be reading at the Ivy Bookshop on Falls Road. I read there last year as well, and it’s a wonderful place–the kind of cozy bookstore that you could curl up in for hours. Plus, the people who work there are fabulous.
Then, at 1 p.m., I’ll be heading over to the Children’s Bookstore on Harford Road. I’ve never been there before, but I’m excited. It’s a Baltimore institution!
It’s so exciting to be doing readings again. Part of why I wrote a children’s book about Halloween is the fact that Halloween turns me into a great big seven-year-old. Now, every year, I get to put on a witch’s hat, put on little finger plays with spooky props, and watch kids giggle with delighted disgust as I pretend to eat a rubber spider. It’s such a blessing to be a part of something exciting for these kids.
If you want to see me being a big Halloween-loving dork, pick up a signed copy of Mother Ghost, and support some local independent bookstores, come by and say hi on Saturday!
