Steeped in Stories: Timeless Children's Novels to Refresh our Tired Souls (Broadleaf Books) is my way of making peace with seven "Aunties" and "Uncles" who formed me with their beautiful stories (A Little Princess, Anne of Green Gables, The Silver Chair, Little Women, Emily of Deep Valley, Heidi, and The Hobbit), and yet (like all of us) were trapped in their own eras.
You're invited to celebrate the launch of this nonfiction book for adults on August 31, 2021 at Rakestraw Books in Danville, CA at 7 p.m. OR on September 12, 2021 at Newtonville Books in Newton, MA at 3 p.m. Bring a friend or two and join us if you're near the Bay Area or the Boston area. We'll reminisce about our favorites, I'll read briefly from my book, and we'll discuss the issue of how to deal with flawed books, whether written in the past or in the present. A signing will follow, so if you can't make it to the events, order from either indie and they will send a signed copy to you. Hope to see you! RSVP using the links above.
