School ends today for elementary kids in Fort Collins! (Did I tell you I moved to Fort Collins, Colorado?) And the weather this Memorial Day weekend is supposed to be sunny and in the 70s to 80s. Summertime is here! Which means families will be taking vacations and kids will be enrolling in summer camps. Summer is also a great time to read books for pleasure – and prizes! Check out your local library to see what’s in store for their summer reading programs.
And if you’re looking for a special read, my friend, Mary Nethery, is signing her new book about a charming cat who lives in Venice at Eureka Books during Arts Alive on Saturday, June 5th. The illustrations by John Manders are beautiful, too. I can already picture it as a Disney movie! Be sure to pick up a copy of The Famous Nini: The Mostly True Story of How a Plain White Cat Became a Star, and give it to your favorite cat-loving person.
I have a new book coming out at the end of the summer called How to Raise a Dinosaur. It’s my first novelty book! I’ll keep you posted when the release date nears. In the meantime, you can order my other books through the widget in the column to the right.
P.S. If you’re a writer in Fort Collins, let’s get in touch.
